Did you ever want to become a wizard?
Don't you lie to me. I know you have tried to move objects with your mind.
How did that work out for you?
Just as I thought :)
In this Instructable, we'll have a look at a way to make a Magic Wand.
Maybe it will not do real magic, but your victims don't have to know that.

I got 2 stainless steel chopsticks.
Even though they look the same, one was a little bit longer and thicker.
I cut them both in half.
Then I sanded the bottom.
I made a few holes in the thickest chopstick's bottom.
After putting some glue on neodymium magnets, I put them in the other chopstick.
Then I glued a piece of plastic to the other side of the magnet.
(so the drill bit we'll use does not stick to the magnet)
I cut a shot from the cap and put it onto a drill bit.
Now put the drill bit inside of the wand and close it.
Our magic Wand is ready!
You can do 2 things with it.
1. Make a mini explosion + smoke
2. Put a laptop to sleep.
With a quick motion of your hand, you can trigger a mini explosion with smoke (just like a cap gun)
With the other side of the wand, you can put a laptop to sleep (great for a prank)
It works because of the magnetic switch in your laptop.
I encourage you to watch the video as I think it will be easier to understand the way it works.
