Portal Pumpkin is a “Huge Success!”

First of all, if you’ve never played Portal, Valve’s insanely famous five-year-old first-person puzzle video game, stop what you’re doing and go play it. Now. Don’t come back until you know whether or not the cake is a lie.

Then return to this article and enjoy this pumpkin carving that is pretty much on par with the Statue of David.

This pumpkin-turned-defense-turret is the 2010 brain child of Neil Fraser, and comes complete with a tiny internal motor and gears, and (presumably horrifying) panning motions, just like in the game.

Now all it needs is a speaker. Imagine: You plant this thing in front of your house, and the first too-cool-to-trick-or-treat sixteen-year-old gets a disembodied, “I see you.”

Happy Halloween indeed.

Aziza Sullivan has always enjoyed three things in excess: food, writing, and sleeping. While the first two are happily combined, the third tends to get in the way, since it turns out the average reader is uninterested in sleep blogs. She also enjoys coffee, probably too much, if there is such a thing.
