Portal Turret in Real Life Sings, Has Laser, is Motion-Activated [Video]
Previously, someone made a motion-activated plush Portal turret, and it was adorable. Do-it-yourselfer Ryan Palser took the turret-creation a step further and recreated it to be as lifelike as possible. He added the red sensor laser, got the turret to say most of its catchphrases when activated by motion, and also gave the turret the ability to sing “Still Alive,” the anthem from the first Portal.
Interestingly, Palser has only made two of the turrets to date, one of which was purchased by none other than Cliff Bleszinski, noted developer of video games featuring big biceps and big guns. Cliffy B did not disclose how much he paid for the turret, but he did post a picture of it, in a very, uh, Cliffy B kind of fashion. Palser’s DIY turret is fairly awesome, but the regular turret isn’t our favorite Portal turret anymore. It seems someone has to add a new creation to his DIY To Do list, but no hard feelings if he doesn’t.
