We finally have more details on the extremely faithful Portal turret replica that Valve showed off last week. It turns out that it was commissioned by Valve from Weta Workshop, the award-winning special effects, design and prop makers known for their work in The Lord of the Rings.
…by different I mean it looks exactly the same as the famous robot from Portal 2. An achingly short video of the replica was posted at Valve’s Facebook account, with no further details provided other than an acknowledgement from the Valve Store Facebook account, which said “Hello friend.”
This is how the New England office (blue) of Dealer.com is connected to the company’s California office (orange). Either that, or this is actually a shot of Aperture Science Laboratories, with webcams included as props to throw us off.
This wouldn’t be the first, most accurate, or even the first reinterpreted version of the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Gun I’ve ever seen, but it might just be the most awesome. Instead of being made out of slick plastic or fiberglass, this version is handcrafted from more traditional materials.
We’ve seen a handful of beautiful replicas of the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device, but this replica by deviantART member Melissa aka techgeekgirl is special because most of its exterior parts were 3D-printed based on files from the game itself.
Although the Portal gun is quite hard to replicate, it’s balanced out by the fact that Chell’s costume is an ordinary jumpsuit. Thanks to NECA, now you don’t even need to make your own jumpsuit. Scientists have already noted that the jumpsuit will look stupid on you, but they should also note that you don’t care.
The petition for an official LEGO Portal set is going strong, but it still hasn’t quite garnered enough votes to qualify for consideration from the powers that be. Maybe they should add this to the set to get more support: a life-sized LEGO Portal gun.
Remember the fan made LEGO Portal 2 figures? Remember how your insides hurt for days from wanting those toys so bad? Round up that desire and channel it into one mouse click. A group of fans have submitted a proposal to LEGO for three sets based on the hit puzzle game.
If the Aperture Science employees were wearing these before GLaDOS gassed them, they would have been able to breathe clean air through a portal linked outside the lab. Or, you know, use the portals to escape.
Sure, we’ve seen the odd Portal turret here and there, but this one actually shoots. It was created by a Penn State University student for his Advanced Mechatronics class’ final project. Just like in the game, it tracks its victims using a camera and shoots at them.
How do you make Portal’s Weighted Companion Cube even more adorable and indispensable? By making it talk and move on its own. But since that will never happen, ThinkGeek has the next best solution: a Companion Cube Cookie Jar.
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.
Tom Scott, along with some friends ported some video games like Minecraft, Portal, and The Crystal Maze into a mini-golf game for some extra fun and it looks like an awesome time for all, despite the fact that there is no Super Mario anywhere.
I bet more than a few of you are fans of the game Portal and Portal 2. Besides GLaDOS, the Companion Cube, Wheatley and Cave Johnson, one of the most memorable things Chell had to deal with are those pesky turrets lying around the environment.
Aperture Science was founded during the 1970s, but if its scientists started work on the Handheld Portal Device in 1870, this is what the gun might have looked like. I must say, I’m liking this junkyard look more than the sterile original.
