Portal probably is one of the most critically acclaimed games in the world. Chell has to complete each puzzle with the help of a portal gun and after doing so, GLaDOS would give him a piece of cake.
Not a very attractive proposition to me, but Chell quite doesn’t think so neither do the number of Portal fans who swear by the puzzles. Well, this time around someone has gone ahead and created a humongous Steampunk Portal Gun that actually looks quite scary.
Anything that is Steampunk has an Aha-effect on many people including me. BATMAN-N-BANANAS is a Steampunk crafter who knows how to make use of every nonsensical piece of metal in order to create something that can actually look profound. He went ahead and glued together 2 antique clock movements, 1 +1/2 hangers, Metal teapot stand and a variety of other stuff. The complete list includes a plastic mechano, plumbing parts, plastic tubes, tubs, lids and loads of nuts and bolts. Of course, he also rummaged in his parents garage to get hold of several weird metal chunks and used loads of glue to stick it all together.
The end result is a monstrous gun that looks pretty intimidating. I would perhaps never venture near a person who would hold this Steampunk Portal Gun menacingly. Though it might not shoot bullets, it certainly could deliver a death blow if the bearer decides to get nasty and whack you right on top of the head. Well, that is something that might not really happen and we must admit that this Steampunk Portal Gun is something that Chell would have loved to hold.
If you are feeling adventurous and hypomanic, you could go ahead and build a gun like this yourself. Otherwise, you have the option of taking a look at this Replica Portal Gun that looks like a child’s play.
