So this is a custom Lego (compatible) piece I made.
The Companion Cube from the game Portal/Portal2.
This just a quick render, it will be manufactured by Shapeways.
Each side of this cube is 2x2 unit. It also can be used as a converter or reverser.
It actually made of two pieces and if my assembling design was correct then it will be able to buy.
But I need to test it first!
(Unexpected Portal joke...)
I will update this entry, when the prototype arrives.
What do you think?
Do you like this concept?
It's also on Cuusoo
[Aperture Science theme]
CAVE JOHNSON here.
Ladies and Gentlemen, I've got some good news and some bad news.
The good news is the Weighted Companion Cube prototype has finally arrived.
Except it's not weighted. It's actually light. And hollow.
But it's just a prototype man! Prototypes must have some errors!
Science was invented, to solve problems. If we wouldn't be able to create problems, we wouldn't be able to solve anything.
And now the bad news.
Do you still remember the errors, I was talked about?
We've got some others too.
This cube is not exactly perfectly fits to the other Lego pieces.
Now I will do two things.
First: I'm giving you some pictures about the problems.
Second: I'm going to give some headache to the man, who's responsible for this... thing.
