Man Builds 80,000 Volt Thor’s Hammer
“It’s high voltage you cant shake the shock/Because nobody wants it to stop, check it out.”
Linkin Park’s High Voltage, anyone? Well, at least one man might want to consider adopting it as his theme song thanks to this DIY Thor Hammer project. Caleb from Hackaday managed to build an 80,000 volt Thor Hammer out of tesla coil and foam. As you’ll see in the video, it’s even capable of lighting up a light bulb.
It’s so cool, he might as well master “numerology and big bang theology.”
Seriously, man, High Voltage is a great song.
Bionic Iron Man Armor
If you’d like to really impress other moviegoers while in line to see Iron Man 3 on May 3rd, then you might want to check out this video.
The video from Instructable shows off a repulsor that’s powered by your muscles. No, you won’t actually blast someone into a new comic continuity, but what it will do is light up and make the sound effect. Basically. you flex your forearm muscle to charge it up, and relax it to “fire a blast.” Also as a bonus, when you turn it on, J.A.R.V.I.S’s voice takes you through the boot up and calibration sequence.

Because There’s Always More Room Inside
You know I’m not actually sure if these two items do look bigger inside like The Doctor’s TARDIS, but they are pretty nifty. The first two images are of a $90 TARDIS Play Tent available at ThinkGeek. It’s almost six-feet tall with the interior designed to look like the inside of the TARDIS.
Meanwhile, if you’ve got tons of necklaces, rings, watches, and otherworldly bracelets, you might get a kick out of pzcreations22’s TARDIS jewelry box. It’s currently sold out on ETSY, but you could try begging pz nicely to make one to order.

Seriously Amazing LEGO Porsche 911
We’ve all seen some spectacular LEGO creations, but I think this one takes the cake. Don’t be deceived by the simple look of the replica. The original work is not only motorized, but comes FULLY FUNCTIONAL— locking doors, retracting hardtop, and 7-speed transmission with reverse, just to name a few. The builder painstakingly replicated attributes of a real Porsche 911, from a unibody chassis to its weight ratio. The car also has a remote control completely built out of LEGO.
It really is a sight to see. Honestly, I thought 7 minutes wasn’t enough. Shots can be seen on the builder’s personal blog here. Note: Site is in Spanish
