Must Watch: Penn State Student Creates Working Portal Turret

by on May 10, 2012 >> PCPS3VideosXbox

I love Portal. I love everything about the franchise and I wear, on a daily basis a band that states I’m an Aperture Test Subject. I’ve seen mock ups of the turrets from Portal in the past but never one that actually makes sounds, tracks your movement and fires. This student has rigged up MATLAB and an Arduino processor to a couple servo mounted USB rocket launchers and a webcam that tracks a pink shirt and fires on it when it’s stationary. It even has the red laser. Pretty cool stuff. Sure it’s not as fluid and right now the frame is lacking, but for an early start it’s pretty great.
