DIY high voltage Thor's Hammer: Mjolnir at 80,0...
I wanted Thor's hammer (Mjolnir), but I wasn't going to accept any old boring plastic prop. I needed something with a little more POP.
I worked with Staci Elaan to build this hammer that has a solid state tesla coil inside. When you push the button, 80,000 volts of electricity arc from the top.
It will light up any flourescent bulbs around, scare children, and leave the smell of ozone behind. It is super fun!
