Companion Cube Cabinet Proves Portal Crafts Are Still Alive

Companion Cube Cabinet Proves Portal Crafts Are Still Alive
Portal crafts will never die, and why should they? We’re all still deeply attached to our Weighted Companion Cubes (sniff)… so attached, in fact, that some of us build furniture in homage to our six-sided pals. And there’s even cake… but I don’t know, something tells me it might be…

Aperture Science Van Tooling Around, Scaring the Hell Out of People [Portal]

Aperture Science Van Tooling Around, Scaring the Hell Out of People [Portal]
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.…

Portal Cross Stitch Promotes Safety in Science

Portal Cross Stitch Promotes Safety in Science
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. Apparently, all that’s necessary for this project is learning to cross stitch! Cross…

The Latest Device From Aperture Science: Interactive Portal Shirt

The Latest Device From Aperture Science: Interactive Portal Shirt
I’ve seen a lot of geeky shirts, but these ones take the cake. Or not. Think Geek‘s April Fools offering for this year are “interactive portal shirts”, that mimic the portal effect popularized by Valve’s first-person puzzler. Each $100 shirt has a wireless 5.6 GHz video camera and a portal-shaped…

Aperture Science Buttons for Portal Fans

Aperture Science Buttons for Portal Fans
Valve’s twisted puzzle game, Portal, may sport the stark, empty environments of the title’s test center setting, but even with a minimalist backdrop, Portal’s rich with atmosphere. One of the most memorable things about the game? The wonderful Aperture Science safety signs. Just in case you need a constant reminder…

Pair of Portal Ponies Pops Up

Pair of Portal Ponies Pops Up
Just when you thought it was safe to surf the Internet again without running into custom Portal gear working to lure you back into your addiction to Valve’s hit game, the fandom rush has returned in pony form. My Little Pony form, that is. Ah, when two fandoms collide! The…

Papercraft Xmas Tree is a Colorful Fire Hazard

Papercraft Xmas Tree is a Colorful Fire Hazard
There’s just something about most holiday decorations that screams fire hazard, but this one really takes that idea and runs with it. This Christmas tree, by deviantARTist Maire, is done up almost completely in papercraft. The few lone traditional ornaments look awfully forlorn (and seriously outnumbered). The decorations are a…

Weighted Companion Cube Subwoofer is No Lie

Weighted Companion Cube Subwoofer is No Lie
Finally, there’s a Weighted Companion Cube mod that actually has enough heft to earn its name. This custom-built subwoofer bears a striking resemblance to that little cube that you had to euthanize the last time you played Portal. Modder d_stilgar spent the last several months painstakingly recreating the details of…

‘Portal’ Companion Cube Cookies- Obscure but Tasty

‘Portal’ Companion Cube Cookies- Obscure but Tasty
I recently spotted these ‘weighted companion cube’ cookies from the somewhat obscure (or maybe that’s just me?) video game Portal. I’ll freely admit I’ve never even heard Portal until about 15 minutes ago when I saw a picture of this cookie, but I did some reconnaissance and learned that in…

Portal Technology in the Real World

Portal Technology in the Real World
Inspired by the mind-bending transportation technology in last year’s sleeper hit game Portal, this video clip uses digital augmented reality technology to produce a similar effect in the real world. Created by EmmanuelMFr of France’s Total Immersion, the illusions in the video really are reminiscent of those in the game.…

Weighted Companion Cube Cake is Not a Lie

Weighted Companion Cube Cake is Not a Lie
If you’re like me, you probably killed more than a few weekends back in the Fall playing Portal. As you probably know by now, the cake promised as the reward for completing all the puzzles was a big fat lie. That didn’t stop this talented baker from whipping up an…

Weighted Companion Cube Pc: Where have You Been? [Casemod]

Weighted Companion Cube Pc: Where have You Been? [Casemod]
I’ve been keeping my eye on this Portal-inspired casemod project for a while now, watching and waiting for the builder to eventually finish his creation. And just like the cake, I guess that case was a lie. Then, out of the blue, I was checking out Gizmodo this morning when…

Knitted Companion Cube Sure Ain’t Weighted

Knitted Companion Cube Sure Ain’t Weighted
Here’s another fun Portal-inspired craft goody — it’s a plush, knit version of the game’s Weighted Companion Cube. Now you may ask, how can something so soft and fuzzy qualify as “weighted”? I guess we just have to allow some artistic license to the creator of this handstitched wool cube.…

Portal Companion Cube Accompanies You Anywhere

Portal Companion Cube Accompanies You Anywhere
Know someone who’s addicted to Portal? Here’s the perfect holiday gift for the obsessive fan of The Orange Box’s mindbending first-person puzzler. Inspired by the game’s handy Weighted Companion Cube, this pendant will accompany you through the test chamber of life. Please take care of it. Brisbane Australia artist Heather…
