Portal Theme Done on 8080 and C64

If you've played Portal then seeing this video brings everything full circle. The retro computers inspired the closing song "Still Alive" which has then inspired someone to recreate the song on retro computers. It's geektastic and was done on an Intel 8080 with a C64 sound chip.If you haven't played Portal yet and you're even remotely into games, then beg, borrow, or steal a few hours on a machine to play it. It's lovely. via bbgadgets

Russian GLaDOS Replica

This AMAZING GLaDOS Robot was built by Nick Liksys (tabun.everypony.ru) is a 1:20 scale version of everyone's favorite AI sociopath from Portal 2.  Nick has worked on her for one hour ever since the game came out and built her using servos, accelerometers, controllers, and thirty yards mounting wires.  This is a truly fantastic reconstruction and her movements and voice match very accurately to the game.   You can check out his photo link here: http://fotki.yandex.ru/users/mdevaev/album/188552/

Can somebody help me write a simple arduino program involving a motion sensor?

I have been working on a motion activated version of the mini portal turret from think geek. I am new to arduino, and have no idea where to start when it comes to programming! I have designed the circuit so that the led for the eye and the microcontroller that controls the voice are separate. My goal is to have a PIR detect the presence of a person, the turret to speak a single phrase, and the led to fade in and out. It will then wait 5 seconds, and if motion is detected, repeat the previous cycle. If no motion is detected, the led will fade out and stay off.  If somebody could just get me started in the right direction, I would be very grateful!

Require assistance building a circuit with sound and lights for the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device.

Last week, I constructed a prop ASHPD for my cosplay outfit for the Tokyo Game Show- being a generic male test subject. Considering the time crunch I had, I was not able to put as much detail into it as I would have liked. None the less, it came out pretty good. Now, I want to improve upon it. One of the upgrades I want to apply, I have no experience with. The layout of the circuit that I want is as follows: On/Off toggle switch. This is simply to preserve battery life. The device will also have 2 single press buttons, one for the blue portal, and the other for the orange portal. Upon pressing the blue button, a blue light will illuminate, and play the sound file associated with the firing of a blue portal. Once the button is released, the blue light needs to stay on, however, upon pressing the button again, it will play the sound again, without chaning the state of the light. The same needs to happen with the orange button- it turns off the blue light and turns on the orange light simultaneously, while playing the sound file associated with the firing of the orange portal. Again, pressing this button again needs to play the sound file again, without changing the state of the illuminated orange light. I currently own the toggle switch and the 2 buttons, as well as 2 rod lights designed for placement in a computer. I don't know if I will be able to cut the motherboard pin connector off and just solder the wires to the circuit. I'm assuming so.

What's a good way to recolor a wire's insulation? Answered

I'm making a portal-themed project. It uses two wires, ethernet, and USB. I have a blue ethernet cable, so I thought it would be cool to have an orange USB. Anyone know a good way to recolor a cable's insulation? I thought painting would be imperfect, since the original black USB might show through. But if nobody has anything better, then I guess painting would have to be it. Thanks, and, as always, Don't Forget To Be Awesome! EDIT: Could I just use normal household paint?

How best to move a servo to music?

Hi All! I have a quick question, I want to move a servo in time with music and was wondering how best to do that with an arduino. I found someone on Instructables who made a talking skeleton open its mouth when the volume of the music rose above a certain point but just remapping the analog in signal from my wave shield is not moving the servo as smoothly as I would like, it just sort of jitters around. I guess this makes sense as the voltage changes quite a bit to create an audio wave form. I have a wire from R7 on my wave shield plugged into an analog port. Would the MSGEQ7 chip be the best way to accomplish my goal or is there another way? If anyone is curious I am attempting to move the arms of a portal turret in time to the turret opera. Thanks for your time, -ookid

Ch, 4 In Which Mikeasaurus comes to Instructables and I Build Portal Stuff

Hey Instructabrarians! SHIFT! here to give you all of the semi-recent goings on at Instructables Laboratories!  Last week, our facility opened it's doors to our newest team member Mikeasaurus!  He's been a long time user and fan of the site (you might remember him from such classic 'ibles like Wristwatch Turntables, the very Blade Runner-esque Umbrella Light, and most recently the popular Magnetic Putty ) and we are pleased to have him join us.  So far, he's done a terrific job helping me out with shipping out packages as well as being a fantastic go to guy for any Photoshop editing needs!  As for me, awhile ago for one of our in-house contests, I was looking for unique ways to liven up our lab at Instructables HQ. My inspiration finally from a picture of the iconic cake, from the first Portal game, that hangs – on our bathroom door. I thought it would be really fun to create some kind of companion piece alongside it, and decided to make a couple of themed papercraft models based on the game.  For my first craft I decided to make something that would help protect Instructables’ top secret information from unwanted intruders and rogue test subjects. “Hey”, I thought, “why not the militaristic Turret defenses?” This deadly craft was designed by deviantart’s billybob884 using Pepakura software. He has done some amazing work with papercrafts and Portal and was responsible for designing my amazing GLaDOS papercraft I enlarged 24 X for our recent Game.Life Contest. (“Oh, So NOW you’re going to mention Me? [[=REDACTED=]], you Monster.”) Next, I constructed a tiny 1- inch craft, the fan favorite friendly Companion Cube, desktop edition for our editor-in-chief zazenergy. This craft was designed by user Moony for the /po/ board on 4chan.com Just the thing to help zazenergy with some normal day to day testing!  Finally I created the FrankenTurret that was featured in Portal 2 which (spoiler alert) is a horrific combination of the Aperture Science Weighted Storage Cube. This cool miniature craft, however, came from digitprop.com and was given to Mikeasaurus, who is another fellow Portal fan of our lab. I also have future plans for a fully functioning one and plan to submit it to our Simplebots curator and designer Randofo sometime soon. Anyway, I love Portal and Papercrafts so this seemed like a perfect combination to me. I have a few more Full-Scale versions for some of our upcoming contests, so that should be really interesting. -SHIFT! EDIT: I had pictures of Mike in our office, but can't seem to find them anywhere, sadly.
