This Life-Sized Portal Turret Replica Has Its Laser Eye on YouS

Complete with a red laser eye and motion-sensing sound bytes, video game replica prop master Ryan Palser's latest creation is only one assload of bullets away from being a really bad idea.

Palser has spent month's putting together this replica of my favorite characters from the first Portal game, and all of his hard work certainly shows in the final product. The custom laser-cut eye is a work of art, the plastic bits perfectly polished to a high sheen. Motion sensors cause sound files to play, wondering if you're still there, while the game's theme song plays at the touch of a button.

Unfortunately Valve changed up the turret design between Portal and Portal 2, so Ryan has labeled this one Portal Turret Version 1.0. Perhaps for version 2.0 he'll finally get around to adding bullets.

Hit up Ryan's Flickr page to see how the entire project played out from start to finish.
