Project-H: Thor Hammer

   In Norse mythology, Mjölnir (Old Norse: Mjǫllnir, IPA: [ˈmjɔlːnir])[1] is the hammer of Thor, a major Norse god associated with thunder. Mjölnir is depicted in Norse mythology as one of the most fearsome weapons, capable of leveling mountains.[2][3][4] In his account of Norse mythology, Snorri Sturluson relates how the hammer was made by the dwarven brothers Sindri and Brokkr, and how its characteristically short handle was due to a mishap during its manufacture.

This concept works by putting an electromagnet in a a hammer prop replica to create the illusion of it being heavy. This electro magnet should be able to have a pull strength of 600lbs. When off it will weigh about 10lbs. It can be turned on and off by an RC remote switch. This is a fun project to demonstrate our knowledge of advanced physics concepts and love for geek culture!
