Could you build a Portal Turret? Yes; here’s one

This is an academic project – the creation of a real life Portal Turret. Watch the video and listen as it even sounds like a Portal Turret. It’s a gun that sweetly asks you to come closer. It’s also a gun that tracks you as you move and shoots you.

The good news is that the gun is only armed with NERF darts.

Whereas this is a good example of engineering and programming skills it begs the question; “what next?” Would you build GLADoS next? Would you? For science, you monster.

Are you impressed?
