Back in 2010, Volpin Props' Harrison Krix designed a jaw-dropping replica of everybody's favorite Aperture Science creation, the Handheld Portal Device.
In the following year, deviantArt user Batman-n-Bananas created their own replica, this time with a steampunk twist. Luckily for us, it looks like crafty artists aren't ready to forget about Aperture Science just yet.
This replica, based on the original Portal Gun, was created by Melissa, also known as deviantArt member techgeekgirl. According to her, the replica is even more detailed than the officially licensed replica by NECA.
Apparently the majority of this replica was created with a 3D-printer based on original files from the game itself. That's about as authentic as it can get! Like Krix' replica, this one also includes awesome sound effects and of course blue and orange LED effects. Check out the video below to see Melissa's creation in action:

Wow, the detail is impressive.Reply
I'm kind of speechless, the only thing that comes to mind it "Shut up and take my money!".
Can It portal me to the date HL3 will be released?Reply
truth be told i see nothing fascinating worth braggin from this... its a toy gun that doesnt work.Reply
dont get me wrong a like portal... but this is not an accomplishment when compared to someone that actually build it with their hands(which there are many of).
interesting news regarding 3d printing is the fact that people can print weapons that can fire.
she used the pre existing files from portal.... seriously what a news worthy accomplishment.
she looks like a man in that picture.Reply
I was waiting for a pingpong ball to fly across the room, how disappointing. :cry:Reply
Note to you guys that collect Action Figures, movie replicas and Gaming tie in toys.Reply
We are not impressed at all. If we look interested we are in fact just being kind.
Inwardly we are thinking..."Jeez what a virgin!"
wow Logic, its obvious your childhood is gone....you should probably get into politics.Reply
so what's the point?Reply
Make one that actually jumps back like when you pull the trigger in the game and I'm sold.Reply
Still waiting for one that actually shoots portals that I can jump through.... /jkReply
