DIY Electromagnetic Mjölnir Prank: Magnethor

by Lambert Varias

Thor’s hammer Mjölnir is famous for its enchantment that allows only the bravest and kindest to wield it and its lethal power. YouTuber Allen Pan aka Sufficiently Advanced put a high tech spin on the picky hammer with the help of science. He proved to be more like Loki, yet was still able to wield Mjölnir.

Allen made a battery-powered electromagnet using a microwave’s transformer and stuffed it inside a toy Mjölnir. Then he added two things. First is a touch sensor that turns the electromagnet on whenever someone touches the handle. Second is a fingerprint scanner, so that he could turn the magnet off if he scanned his print on it. All he needed was a magnetic surface and he could have some fun with his neighbors.

That last dude got a free pass to Asgard.
