Wait -- you've got a Portal gun and it's just sitting on the shelf collecting dust? Not cool bro.

Just in time for the release of Iron Man 3 *shrug*, this is a video of Caleb from Hackaday showing off the 80,000-volt Thor hammer he built out of a tesla coil and foam. It can light up light bulbs. My smile? My smile can light up an entire room. So can a fire.

Hit the jump for the video of the defibrillator in action.

Thanks to my pathological liar of a pal Terry, who tried to tell me he's swinging an eight pound man-hammer between his legs even though we both know it's not true because we change in the locker room together after racquetball.
