Weta Workshop Sent Valve A Functional Portal Turret


This is a video of Valve employees unboxing and playing with the spot-on Portal turret replica sent to them from Weta Workshop. It even has motion-tracking capabilities so it can aim at you wherever you go. It doesn't shoot anything though, just has some light-up gun effects and sound. Now I know what you're thinking, "That doesn't look anything like a Portal turret, GW -- it's a box! Have you even played the game before?" Nope, neither one. I just blew your mind didn't I? "Plus lost a lot of respect." *pinching cheek* Daaaaaw, you still had some left for me?!

Hit the jump for a short video of the unboxing and demo.

Thanks to Tone, who -- you call me a friend, but you only want my gifts, and I'd never see you if I had no loot. Anybody?! Come on, that song was great!

    g'yeah, this is swell and all but shouldn't you be working on finishing half life 3?

    No lazer targeting? Weak sauce...

  • Awesome Aperture Laboratories shirt:

  • ZanshinKyo

    Would have like the demo to be a LOT longer.

  • westmclarenmerc

    Am I still the only one thinking that that thing is what happens when a Wii and a Xbox 360 would have a child in Tsjernobyl?

  • Gary Guillot

    Does this mean that Peter Jackson is interested in making a film adaptation of Portal?

  • Naz

    he would make it into three parts though...

  • McfeelySmackup

    and then a 3 part sequel

  • Emmitt Morgans

    Correction: Prequel...

  • westmclarenmerc

    Be happy he didn't say Geogre Lucas, because then the film would've been changed 14 times in 7 years.

  • I so hope you're right!

  • Emmitt Morgans

    Weta Workshop: SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!

    This, along with 'I'M THROWING MONEY AT THE SCREEN BUT NOTHING IS HAPPENING!!1!' is quickly becoming my new most annoying overused internet comment.
