View Full Version : Valve demos 99% working Portal turret, lacks only firepower and spark of life (maybe)

09-14-12, 06:00 AM

Let‚??s kick off this Friday morning with one of the cutest weapons of war you‚??ll ever see ‚?? a Portal 2 turret that replaces its guns with flashing lights, but otherwise acts just like the turrets in the game. It‚??s manufactured by Gaming Heads and due out later this year (https://www.gamingheads.com/index.php?option=com_myphp&Itemid=3&product=100) ‚?? though in very limited numbers to begin with. If you want one, it‚??ll be $300. Check the video below to see what it can do.

Gaming Heads also sells a number of Team Fortress 2 related bits and pieces. ThinkGeek on the other hand would have been your place to go for an authentic, though sadly non-functional Portal Gun (http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/ed41/), had it not sold out of them 30 minutes after saying ‚??So, we have this‚?¶‚?? A few other options are still around though (http://www.play.com/Gadgets/Gadgets/4-/29406113/-/Product.html) if you don‚??t mind paying a little more to have your very own Aperture experience.

Cake and jumpsuit sold seperately. Literally. (http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/efe8/)

Update: A couple of people have pointed out that the GH one doesn‚??t look quite like the one in the video, being too big next to the laptop in the back and looking like a different material. Both true. Possibly this a custom Valve build, like they did for the Team Fortress 2 turret in their lobby? Hopefully there‚??ll be the official word soon, not just the awesome video. This was however first posted by TheValveStore on Facebook, suggesting that at some point people will be able to get their hands on one.
