Make your own Sonic Screwdriver

August 22 |

Homies and fellow Dr. Whoians, this twelve-year-old is about to school you on how to build your own Sonic Screwdriver. I KNOW, I KNOW: I was super excited when I found out this video existed, too. If you don't watch Dr. Who, you may now be scratching your head and wondering what the hell a Sonic Screwdriver even is! In short, it's the tool that The Doctor uses for a variety of things — picking locks, tracking aliens, and other everyday Doctor activities. If you're still fuzzy, Wikipedia can tell you all about it.

  5. This is cool but am I missing something? I didnt see him explain how to get it to make the noise…

    • at the end, in the credit, it said that he used some application on his phone to make the sound

    • If you paid attention to the end credits it said he used an app with a phone to make the sound.

  6. Has anyone actually made this? I need to do this, but am unsure of how long it takes

    • It calls for "neodymium" magnets. They are relaitvley cheap (small ones) and can even be salvaged off of magnetic building toys and magnetic action figures.

  7. I can't understand what were you saying about materials. Could you write materials?
