David created this impressive LEGO card shuffling and dealing robot, which “can turn on a large turntable in order to actually face the person it is dealing”. One more picture after the jump.
CardShark has 2 RCXs (one is on the other side) that communicate to each other via IR messages, about enough feet of electrical wiring to run around the perimeter of the room it was built in, and more motors, sensors, and pieces than you would like to think about. The concept of the robot is to first shuffle the cards, then carry them through the robot to where the “card spitting” wheels are. The large wheels are run in opposite directions and therefore shoot out the cards once they come in contact
