Since having a daughter, I’ve noticed that I have a renewed interest in toys. Not for her, of course, but for myself. I’ve also played less video games, which is sad. One of my favorite video games is Portal. If you’re not familiar, Portal is a bit different. There aren’t really any ‘bad guys’ to battle or anything, but rather it’s a puzzle game. You’re trapped in a science facility and forced to ‘test’ incessantly. You have to figure out how to get out of various testing rooms using only the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device. This ‘gun’ shoots portals – openings that you can place on certain surfaces that you can pass through. Here’s a video to somewhat explain it:
In any case, Think Geek is showing a listing to buy an official replica of the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device. Unfortunately, it doesn’t *really* shoot portals, since it’s a replica, but it’s still awesome, nonetheless.
