Put down those Companion Cube plushies and pretend Aperture Science Handheld Portal Devices: a student at Penn State University has created a real-life Portal turret able to track and shoot intruders.
We’re not kidding.
The student, who created the turret as the final project for his Advanced Mechatronics study, posted a video of the fully functioning turret on YouTube yesterday, demonstrating the turret’s ability to fire Nerf pellets at anyone it detects.
According to the description, a shell is already in production to make it look like a genuine Portal turret. Oh, and it talks, too.
You already want one, right?
Gears of War designer Cliff Bleszinski revealed that he’d bought a similar Portal turret replica last year, only his one didn’t rotate or fire bullets. We bet he’s kicking himself right now.
Take a look at the video below to see it in action.
