Weighted Companion Cube Soap Keeps You Company in the Bathroom

Weighted Companion Cube Soap Keeps You Company in the Bathroom
Did you know that a Weighted Companion Cube smells like green apples? No, me neither. But apparently they do. At least if your Companion Cube is made from soap like this one. It also comes in Mountain Dew scent, whatever that smells like.

LEGO Portal Figures Are Not Lies, Just Not Official

LEGO Portal Figures Are Not Lies, Just Not Official
The Portal gun allows the user to travel within a world, but if Aperture Science tweaked it so users could cross over to the world of LEGO, here’s what the characters might look like. Flickr user Catsy[CSF] made a custom Chell minifig, complete with Portal gun and jump boots:

Interactive Portal Turret Plushie: Filled With Cuteness, Not Bullets

Interactive Portal Turret Plushie: Filled With Cuteness, Not Bullets
It seems like the Turret will be replacing the Companion Cube as the adorable mascot for Portal. What better way to amp up the charms of the respectful killing machine than by making a plushie? Actually there is a better way – make an interactive, talking turret plushie.

Portal Mirrors: Don’t Walk Into These Unless You Want 14 Years Bad Luck

Portal Mirrors: Don’t Walk Into These Unless You Want 14 Years Bad Luck
Redditor Corttana and her husband made these mirrors for their Portal-themed basement.  They’ll take you to where you’re already at. They achieved the vortexy Portal outlines simply by looping up appropriately-colored rope lights at the back of each mirror.

Portal Gun Replica is Definitely Not a Lie

Portal Gun Replica is Definitely Not a Lie
How’d you like to own a gun that looks just like the one from Portal? You know, the one that can blow holes in surfaces, letting you pass through walls and objects? Thanks to artist Harrison Krix of Volpin Props (the same guy who did this awesome Daft Punk helmet), this one could be yours.

Ben Heck’s Portal T-Shirt is Not a Lie

Ben Heck’s Portal T-Shirt is Not a Lie
Not one to rest on his laurels, modder Ben Heck is once more “at it”, cranking out an awesome geek costume just in time for Halloween. By rigging up a chest-mounted LCD screen and a back-mounted CCD camera, he’s created this Portal-inspired t-shirt.

Minecraft Meets Portal

Minecraft Meets Portal
I honestly haven’t had time to pick up Minecraft and play with it yet, but after seeing this video of yet another creative use for the game, I think I might have to find the time.

Portal and Left 4 Dead: Classic Commercials

Portal and Left 4 Dead: Classic Commercials
So did you know that Portal and Left 4 Dead actually came out back in the 1980s? Yeah, me neither. But the guys at Gamervision claim to have dug up these “lost” 1986 commercials for the two 21st-century games.

Portal Bookends Are Not Lies

Portal Bookends Are Not Lies
…but they’re not for sale either. Not yet anyway. This wonderfully apt creation was made by redditor TriangleMen’s friend using “a CnC table and spare time/metal.” The picture below would have been more awesome if they placed the bookends and books on the opposite sides of a wall.

Glados Plush Cores Are Not Lies

Glados Plush Cores Are Not Lies
Everyone’s psychopathic robot in huggable, squeezable form: From left to right, that’s GlaDOS’s morality core, curiosity core, intelligence core and anger core. The plushies are made of fleece with felt and ribbon accents. They can also talk!

This was an Old School Triumph: Asciiportal

This was an Old School Triumph: Asciiportal
So, Portal was never a pile of eyeball candy or anything–it looked as good as it needed to look, with some really neat visuals that resulted from looking through portals, adorable turret buddies, and delicious cake, but it’s not like anyone was trying for a graphical feat there.

Aperture Science Radio Gets the Real World Treatment

Aperture Science Radio Gets the Real World Treatment
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.

Hairsticks, for That Subtle Touch of Fandom

Hairsticks, for That Subtle Touch of Fandom
I love the less overt displays of fandom as much as I do the building of lifesize robot replicas, so I couldn’t possibly resist hairsticks decorated with little touches of iconic images from video games. Can you imagine walking behind someone with the T-virus bobbing along in their hair?

Where Babies Come From – Portal Wear for Tots

Where Babies Come From – Portal Wear for Tots
When the ESRB gave Portal a “T” rating, I don’t think they meant “T for Toddler”. But your tots can get this hysterical “Where Babies Come From” C-Section graphic on an infant body suit, tiny t-shirt, or a baby bib over at CafePress.
