3D Printed Portal Turret Moves and Tracks Targets: I’m Not Defective!

by Lambert Varias

The first time we featured Instructables member Yvo de Haas aka Dragonator, we checked out his GLaDOS lamp. Now he’s back with another Portal-themed creation, a life-sized replica of the game’s robotic turret. It has moveable parts, emits lights and sound effects and can even track a moving target.

As with his GLaDOS lamp, Yvo used a 3D printer to make the turret’s body parts. He then used an Arduino to control the turret’s light and movement. He can make the turret’s guns move using a joystick. The turret’s targeting and sound effects will only work if it’s connected to a PC though.

Yeah! Let’s do this! Shoot a portal to Instructables to find out how Yvo made the turret.
