Holy Smokes: Super Impressive Steampunk Portal Gun

March 7, 2012


DeviantARTist robin-n-raspberries batman-n-bananas went and built this ultra impressive steampunk Portal gun out of found objects (read: junk). It...is better than the steampunk Portal gun I could build out of pieces designed specifically FOR building a steampunk Portal gun. The ingredients:

2 antique clock movements, 1 +1/2 hangers, Metal teapot stand, plastic mechano, plumbing parts, 1 plant pot, 1 hair gel pot + various lids, plastic tub (those ones you get nuts in the the supermarket), plastic tubing, lots and lots of nuts and bolts, miniature storage box (for the battery compartment), pocket laser disc (you can get them on ebay if anyone's interested), 3 lightbulbs, carboard tube, metal covering from an old hairbrush, AV socket, tons of odds and ends from my parents garage, oh and of course the usuals - milliput, humbrol and warhammer paints, hot melt glue and about 6 gallons of superglue. ...that's about as much as I can remember... enjoy!

Not gonna lie, I've actually put all those things together before and it didn't look anything like a Portal gun. But you know what it DID look like? A yard sale. I made a nickel!

Thanks to my buddy Terry, who's mad as hell and not gonna take it anymore. F*** yeah bro -- let's rage till we puke! Then insist that puke isn't ours AND DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN.

    Soooo steampunk is basically what a normal object would look like if Fred Sanford made it.

  • Jacques

    It definitely has elements of both the Portal gun and Half Life 2's Gravity gun. It's like an combination of both.

  • Chad Hauschild

    this is definitely the gravity gun.

    ah, I wish I had a robotic garbage disposal...wait what it's a Steampunked Portal gun?

  • roxygirlfiction

    I wouldn't call that steampunk, it's more cyberpunk.

    Niiice. I'd love to have that, great work on it!

    Okay... now this is just going to make me imagine the Space Core wearing a top hat or Chell in a corset...

    ...or the Space Core in a corset... mmm...

    (Who's your daddy?  SPAAACE!)

  • All I can see is a binder clip with a bunch of burnished junk tacked on to it.

  • derpblerpherp

    Doesn't look like steampunk at all, actually it looks like the gravity gun.

  • Matt D

    i was just about to say that

  • James Mcelroy

    That is awesome....although I thought steam punk was about taking modern tech (or future tech) and powering it with steam...and brass/bronze. Is that wrong?

  • Steampunk tech is future tech as we envision that Victorian Era people envisioned it...
