Portal 2 PotatOS Science Kit: How are You Holding Up?

by Paul Strauss

If you’re still trying to figure out what to buy me for Christmas, I just found it. The guys at ThinkGeek continue to rock out the awesome Portal 2 inspired merch with this…


Yep. That’s Potato GLaDOS. You know the one who’s a potato? The PotatOS Science Kit comes with everything you need to make your own wisecracking potato, complete with nails, wires, and a blinking GLaDOS core. It even lights up and sasses you with 17 audio clips from the game when you press the button.


The $29.99(USD) PotatOS kit also comes with a science-y backdrop written by the guys at Valve to proudly display behind your potato. Keep in mind that despite it’s looks, they couldn’t figure out a way to generate sufficient power from the potato, so PotatOS is powered by an internal watch battery of its own. So it won’t actually teach you or your kids anything about real science. Only fake video game science. Oh yeah, and you need to provide the potato too, so you could get fancy and use a sweet potato or some other root vegetable if you’re feeling especially creative.

Now back to that Christmas thing. We’re actually just slightly past the holiday ordering deadline at ThinkGeek for standard shipping, so chances are this won’t arrive until after Christmas unless you pay extra for rush shipping. Still, it’s pretty awesome, and any Portal geek would be happy to have one, even if it arrives a few days late. After all, GLaDOS will still be a potato.
