Portal 2 sentry turret protects your desk


If you’re gamer who’s played the puzzle-platform game Portal 2, you’ll undoubtedly remember the sentry turrets you encounter during the game. If you never played Portal 2, it’s a cool game that debuted in 2007 and five years later fans are still playing. This isn’t a the first Portal 2 sentry turret toy we’ve seen over the years, but this is one of the few we’ve seen that plugs into your computer via a USB port.

This particular turret comes from ThinkGeek and is called the Portal 2 Sentry Turret USB Desk Defender. Once you connect the device to your USB port, it will monitor your desktop environment with motion sensing technology. When the turret senses motion it will offer one of five quips the turrets say in the game.

The turret will say things like “There you are,” “Preparing To dispense product,” “I see you” and a few others. If you knock the turret over or move it, it also says things you’ll recognize from the games such as “I don’t hate you,” “hey, hey, hey”, “Nonfunctioning” and others. Once activated if the turret senses no motion for 30 seconds it will say, “Are you still there.”

When the turret does since motion, it opens up its little side wings where its guns hid in the video game. This little USB-powered turret doesn’t shoot anything, it only makes sounds. The turret is 7.5-inches tall and is an officially licensed Portal 2 collectible. You can order one right now for $39.99.
