A Real-Life Thor Hammer?!
Not a prop! Not a dream! Not an imaginary story! This hammer really carries 80,000 volts, thanks to a Tesla coil in its dwarf-forged heart. It was built by Caleb of Hackaday, which we show you now, that you may prepare yourself by queuing up AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck.” Or “Lux Aeterna.” Or both at once! There’s no such thing as too epic when you’re wielding the hammer of the gods, with real lightning action. Read on to see videos of this alternating current of the gods in action.
The timing is great on this because the National Cemetery Adminstration just last week added the hammer of Thor to its available emblems for government headstones and markers. So every Thorseblot (that’s the January full moon for you secular types) you could lay a crackling bouquet of Mjölnirs (Mjölniri?) at the final resting place of your beloved Thorshipper.
You can see how Hackaday built their hammer here, but please use your Mjölnir responsibly, by which we mean crafting a sweeeeeet Beta Ray Bill costume.
