Here is a fun drone for you guys. Those fans of the massively successful Marvel cinematic universe should know about Thor’s iconic hammer: Mjolnir. This hammer, forged at the heart of a dying star, can fly around the battlefield and back. It acts like a boomerang, a disc, and a hammer – all in one.
Mjolnir Drone on the Go
What does this have anything to do with drones, you ask? Well, a bunch of Youtubers tried to emulate the Mjolnir using a drone. They hope that the drone can, in theory, move around like the real thing. Thor can simply throw it in the air and it can move on its own. Using a remote control, a hammer design for the drone, and some awesome costumes, the goal was to replicate this magic.
Thor and the Hammer
Of course, the flight is not the only thing that sets the Mjolnir apart. It also returns to its owner at will. One call, and the hammer comes to the owner’s direction. Using a drone (as well as someone driving nearby), this too, can be possible.
For starters, the ‘design’ for the hammer must be light enough not to drag down the drone’s flight capability. This means they cannot use heavy metals for the hammerhead and shaft. The Youtubers utilized cardboard, which does the trick well enough as it gives a sturdy finish while still retaining its lightness.
Bring Me Thanos!
The Mjolnir drone looks decent enough. It does not have the ‘spin’ action from the original; although it is justified in that, it is a drone. The shaft of the hammer stays at the bottom while the metal part of Mjolnir produces a buzzing noise. It is not perfect, but hey, from afar it looks pretty convincing. It may not wreak havoc against alien invaders, but it looks good for techies everywhere.
