The Hacksmith didn’t want to settle for just a movie replica, so he decided to create the world’s heaviest Thor hammer filled with lead. Since the element isn’t readily available for purchase in bulk quantities, so he went to mechanic shops around town and bought as many tire weights as possible to melt down for lead.

Unlike other clocks, the ETA Clock moves its hands to reveal where people are, using icons instead of hourly numerals, similar to the Weasley family’s magic clock from the Harry Potter series. As friends and family move around through the day, a special app on their phones sends geolocation coordinates to a secure server, which are then transmitted to the ETA Clock device to adjust its hands. “We had envisioned our target customer as a tech-friendly family: A family who wants to stay connected but maintain a sense of independence. However, since building the ETA Clock, we have found that this product is perfect for so many situations. Most uniquely, we have had requests from large and small companies alike asking for a version that displays where their key employees are located by time zone or office. We could even envision the ETA Clock being perfect for roommates, living communities, sororities, and fraternities,” said co-founder Kristie D’Ambrosio-Correll.

Many know Mont-Saint-Michel as an island commune in Normandy, France, located about 0.6-miles off the country’s northwestern coast, at the mouth of the Couesnon River near Avranches. This destination has not always been a tourist destination, but rather the island has held strategic fortifications since ancient times. Its position – on an island just 600 meters from land – made it accessible at low tide to the many pilgrims to its abbey, but defensible as an incoming tide stranded, drove off, or drowned would-be assailants.
