The Weighted Companion PC

http://www.bit-tech.net/modding/2008...companion_pc/1

It's pretty safe to say that Portal was one of the best games released in 2007. For those of you who can't get enough of it, our mega-modder Wolverine has a treat for you. It's time to work with your Weighted Companion PC - cake not included.

Very nice to see it finished, shame that there's no I/O Panel though.

nice basic little PC... but i have to say... a logitech dinovo edge? i'd value that keyboard over the PC itself!

really nice job in any case.

Several accuracy issues:

1. The hearts are painted onto the button bits in the middle, not raised.
2. Those button bits should be rounded
3. The corners don't have enough height.

That being said, I love it.

Wow, wolverine that is very beautiful! Very Impressive too. If only I wasn't in college I'd finish my case mod and hope and pray that mine came out a fraction of how nice this one is. Actually I like it more than your pentagram mod... maybe cause portal is awesome.

You should mod a Gyration mouse into the Portal Gun to match up with this, and create a webcam that looks like the Sentries. Oh the possibilites.

I really like the mod, except for the 'rear IO panel'. TBH that ruins the whole mod for me, even if it's the back side. It just misses something over there.

Believe me, I love it. it's a great case, and I would not object to having one either. First finished weighted companion cube pc to be finished, too. Can't wait to see what you come up with next (glados pc?)

Brilliant idea with that one... maybe it's time for my Epia to see some use again in some form. Weighted companion server?
