Just buying an engagement ring is no longer enough to seal the deal, people.
It took one year of planning and several weeks to build, but in the end YouTuber ferlessleedr completed his Lego Portal gun. The best part is that it "functions," sort of. It's got working prongs and lights that are controlled by a Lego Mindstorm hidden inside the arm unit.
Back when I was in school, we learned about physics the old fashioned way: by dropping bowling balls on our feet.

What do you do after playing as much Portal as you can? You make one for real. At least that's what this one gamer did when he created a portal loop in his bedroom courtesy of some Ikea mirrors and LED lights.

Okay, so that's not exactly what we're looking at here, but a husband and wife team did make DIY decorative portals using oval vanity mirrors and LED rope lights. If you too have ever wanted to recreate Portal portals, you're just a couple steps away.
Ben Heck, king of the video game modders, has gone and made a shirt based on the game Portal. It has a portal on the front that lets you see right through to what's going on on the other side. It's pretty clever!
