New bathroom signs at the office Answered

Picture of

Woohoo! We now have new signs for our bathrooms. Now people will know exactly what to do when they see them.

Both of these were cut with the Epilog laser cutter. The first sign has foamcore cutouts on top of black acrylic. The second one is white acrylic with black sprapyaint applied on top.

it leads to a room with a huge fire pit in it. you have to use the portal gun to get to higher ground before the platform you're standing on goes in to it. then the robot hanging from the ceiling gets angry at you.

once you've escaped the robot's neurotoxin vents  you realize there really was a cake room... but it was through a bunch of tunnels that you couldn't access anyway.
and there was a weighted box with hearts on it beside the cake... and a bunch of robot eyes.... and then the robot started singing.

Agreed, but I think they are not roboteyes but rather bombs.

Ever saw the bombs the helicopter drops in half life 2 and half life episode 2? They are grey with a red blinking light when they're about to explode. And seeing that half life and portal are in the same universe (half life 2 episode 2 gave a pretty big hint to what you are going to do in episode 3 and even portal referenced the combine) we could safely assume that they are one in the same.

A morbid joke from G.L.A.D.O.S. perhaps: If you reach the cake against all odds you will still end up dead.

But when you're dead, I'll be still alive... still alive!

We like to have options.

That and our bathrooms are pretty narrow.

I presume that second one is really a false door with wall behind it?

Was that just too obscure to be funny?

That was the intention. No cake in the bathroom.

Still doesn't change the fact that the related instructables are on the wrong side.

 Call me the jerk buuut:

When I saw the thumbnail of the bathroom door, I immediately thought "Men|Women|Fat People"

upon  loser inspection that is a robot, not a fat person >.<

... then looking at the rest of the pics, I can tell that I wasn't too far off, the fat people room is just next door.

...that is what you meant right??

We could call you a jerk, but you explained it yourself.  "Upon loser inspection, that is a robot."

Looks awesome!  Sort of reminds me of the commercial of the Vesicare robots with overactive bladders.

So it's a co-ed-bot bathroom?  Kinda radical.
