Daleks pop up in many forms. You have the old Daleks, the new Daleks, the new new Daleks with the retro colors and funny build and now a Dalek from Aperture Science. Looks like the Doctor is going to be busy.
While I wouldn’t say the Aperture Laboratories radio was as iconic as – say – the weighted companion cube, it’s still got its own cult following from die-hard Portal fans. Now – thanks to the hard work of one enterprising modder, it’s been brought to life for all to enjoy.
Modder Flauzus handmade this precicely-detailed Aperture Labs radio for his kids to bring along for some cosplay fun at the recent Otakon show.
Flauzus built the radio by creating a 3D SolidWorks model of the radio, which he used as a guide detailed construction drawings.
Somewhere out there, one dedicated Valve devotee is driving around in a sinister white Aperture Laboratories van, thrilling and terrifying random people. Imagine: you’re just walking your dog, minding your own, and suddenly, this van.
I can’t decide if I would run the hell away or start high-fiving random people.
Oh, Portal, why can’t I quit you? The adorable Aperture Science safety diagrams probably have a lot to do with it. Keep your cute little Weighted Companion Cubes; I want to decorate my house with the signs.
