Well that was just plain not real, for one thing. You have to have a star significantly larger than our Sun explode in a supernova, and then the resulting gravity of the star makes it crush itself to a very very very very small very high gravity point. If I remember correctly, that is.
Except in theory you could build an artificial black hole, significantly smaller than natural black holes. It's all a matter of compressing matter. In theory, if you build a hydrogen bomb using all the deuterium and tritium in our oceans, the power of the bomb would be sufficient to compress part of it to a singularity.
Ofcourse, since Earth would be devastated in such an explosion, I must advice you not to test it.
