A Zelda-worthy Home Is One That’s Zelda Ocarina Controlled

No. This isn’t a Zelda edition of the Amazon Echo. Though it will be cool if it was. This is the heart to the Zelda Ocarina Controlled Home Automation by Allen Pan AKA Sufficiently Advanced, and yes, Pan is the same man behind the ‘real’ working Mjolnir hammer and the real-life light saber. As you can see, Zelda Ocarina Controlled Home Automation is not a weapon, though I am sure you can hook it up to unleash your own private army (don’t ask me how, though), or you could just use it to help you achieve more peaceful and mundane tasks like turning on the humidifier, lamps and whatnot, simply by playing the appropriate Legend of Zelda tune.

While some uses laser, which is incredibly dangerous, to recreate the iconic movie weapon, Allen took the path less taken with a lightsaber that essentially spews flame.

Anyways, the point is, nobody, not even superheroes who can lift 700 lbs with ease, can lift it. It is on this basis that electrical engineer Allen Pan, aka YouTuber Sufficiently Advanced, decided to built a “functioning” Mjolnir that only he who is worthy can lift. Thor isn’t real, but Allen Pan’s Real Mjolnir is, which kind of makes him a real life superhero? Continue reading Engineer Builds Thor’s Mjolnir That Only He Who is Worthy Can Lift
