    Wait what? Like a Portal Gun? Because uh, that shoots portals. How do you replicate that in slingshot form?
    Are you asking for a cosmetic replicate that shoots as a slingshot? Because if you want something pretty to look at, they make toy replicas. I can't say a slingshot to look like the gun would be very functional.

    I agree with AS, not very functional for a slingshot.

    Still not seeing the logical functionality with an aperture style slingshot gun. *shrugs*

    Why don't YOU try?

    Almost tempted to blueprint up something now. a portal themed slingshot, with companion cube ammo!

    Maybe like yellow with his arms at 45 degree angles and his egg shaped torso for palm swell? This could be really cool. Yellow, blue is laughing at this silly idea, he doesn't think you can do it;).

    I think maybe I have too much time on my hands at work today.

    here's a quick design I just drew up, scanned and them lined and coloured in Adobe Illustrator (like I said too much time on my hands at work)

    The companion cube was the only thing that translated well in my mind to the purpose at hand.

    the portal cannon isn't the best to draw inspiration from, maybe the grav gun from Half Life 2, thats more angular and industrial

    The companion cube is perfect, after all you rely on it so much in the first game. :)

    If the companion cube's rounded corner thingies were rubber it would be pretty comfy.

    I had to come back and look at it, just friggin' epic. Please make this! If not for a functional slingshot, then just because this is a perfect merge of nerd/gamer love into slingshot love.

    I'll have a look at materials over the weekend and see what I can do, I might have to make a 3D model and print it. I know I can make the corner bumpers out of Sugru for comfort.
    Hmmm, this is going to be a fun little challenge.

    That would be one hell of a cool shooter. What a combination of two awesome hobbies.
