The picture you see here is a life-size replica of the Portal turret made by a fan. Not only is the model impressive in its likeness with the video game character, but maker Ryan Palser also shot some impressive photos of the final product complete with smoke and a laser. Furthermore, using a motion sensor, the turret plays a preloaded audio track when someone comes near. Click here to get a sense of what sounds the Portal turret makes.

In his description, Palser concedes that the turrets in the latest installment of the game, Portal 2 , have been significantly redesigned, so he designated this model Version 1.0. That takes nothing away from the beauty of this project, and we can't wait to see if he will be building the newer turret. More images of the replica after the jump.
