„Working“ Portal Gun

Die Jungs von Hackaday haben sich aus einem dieser schwebenden Magnet-Globen eine „funktionierende“ Gravity Gun aus Portal gebaut, mit der man Companion Cubes durch die Gegend tragen kann. Theoretisch jedenfalls und praktisch vielleicht auch, wenn man vorsichtig ist.

I was out to lunch with a couple friends, brainstorming ideas for fun projects when one of them says “Wouldn’t it be cool if we could build a working gravity gun?”. We all immediately concurred that while it would in fact be cool, it is also a silly proposition. However, only a few seconds later, I realized we could do a display piece that emulated this concept very easily. Floating magnetic globes have been around for quite some time.

I determined I would tear the guts out of a stock floating globe and mount it on a portal gun, since they’re easier to find than a gravity gun.
