I recently played Portal 2 for the first time, and I have to say it is an amazing game. I wanted to make something portal related for my room that was relatively quick and easy, and using only stuff I had lying around.

Thus I made my Portal 2 inspired mirror.

Step 1: Materials

The materials are pretty simple. I used:
  • A cheap old mirror
  • A very old rope light
  • A dimmer switch from who-knows-when
  • And some paper, tape, scissors, paperclips, and nails
Bringing my first instructable out soon on this, thanks for a design that I tweaked and hoped to have improved upon (with a heftier budget)
I'd love to see it!
Very fun :) It would be sweet if another person in the house had a mirror and you put the orange lights around that one! You should enter this into the <a href="http://www.instructables.com/contest/holidaygifts2012">Holiday Gifts Contest</a>!
or have them opposite eachother in the hall way or even better...you know those holes in the wall from kitchen to dining room well have one side orange an one side blue :D yayay real portal ...another idea you know those doors that have oval windows take the glass out or paint with mirror stuff (u can get it) then proceed and tadaar portal door
Ha, the turret switch is a nice touch.
