Earlier today we brought you news of a very cool 3D printed guitar, which is great for musicians to tinker around with. However, if you’re more excited by the world of amateur robotics and the legendary GlaDOS from Portal, this may be a lot more exciting for you!
Someone has created a guide on how to 3D print your own GlaDOS, which you can then fit to your ceiling as a robotic lamp; it may very well be one of the coolest things I have ever seen!
Unfortunately, there’s a few manufacturing problems at the moment, where the GlaDOS gets quite hot, some of the build would require electrical wiring and no doubt a fair bit of skill with fitting servo motors. However, the 3D files are there, so you could always build a stationary unit that would require less skill to construct. There’s certainly room to tweak and improve the design, but the core concept is no doubt too awesome to resist for any budding engineer with a 3D printer at their disposal.
Of course, if the GlaDOS lamp is too hard, you could always just make the potato version!
Now, if someone can get me a 3D printer and a model of FFVII Midgar, with working train and Mako reactors, that’d be great.
