Robotic Wheatley replica brings Portal character to life



Portal is up there as one of the best game series ever. It mixes puzzles, humour and dark sci-fi storytelling into one neat little package. Those of you familiar with the games may remember Wheatley, the robotic sidekick in Portal 2 voiced by Stephen Merchant.

It turns out that someone has built a very realistic remote controlled replica of the character that comes complete with movement and sound. Unfortunately the replica can’t fly… yet. The below video is worth watching just to hear some of the dialogue gems the little guy spouted throughout the game.

You can see how the replica was made over at The Prop Solve. While you read up on that we’ll be playing Portal 2… it’s been too long.
