One of the things that made the movie THOR so special (and palatable for mainstream audiences) was that it explains away it’s premise in the smartest way possible. Thor ( played by Chris Hemsworth) says himself , “My ancestors called it magic…but you call it science. I come from a land where they are one and the same.” This takes away the burden of explaining why mythical figures can exist and turns Thor into a sci-fi character whose “science” allows it to do whatever it wants, while still having all the fun that mythology can bring. Basically, the filmmakers get to have their cake and eat it too.
Why did I explain that before going into this video? Because it’s amazing that the people who made this video are using science to bring the concept of Thor’s hammer, Mjolnir, to life. Without getting into too many details, these guys created a hammer that only certain people can lift.
It’s awesome and fun to watch.
