Portal 2 is out and it is awesome. You can read how awesome it is in our Portal 2 review. Between the single player and multiplayer mode there are a lot of opportunities for gamers to use their portal gun in some pretty cool ways. With so many cool uses and possibilities for the gun in the game, I started thinking about all the cool uses for one in real life. The number of cool and potentially world-changing uses for the gun in real life are almost endless.
After contemplating all the grand uses and potential the device had, my attention turned to those trivial uses, the things I would use the gun for right after I got mine and the things I would likely use the gun for every single day. Without further ado, my top five trivial uses for a Portal gun in real life.
(5) Momentum Ride
From the moment I played the first Portal I knew this would be one of the very first things I would do with my Portal gun. It is like skydiving but you can do it anywhere. Sure you would need to find some safe way to exit the continuous loop free fall but if you actually had a Portal gun maybe you would have some leg braces that helped with impact from landing too, like in the game.
Regardless, shooting one portal into the ground and another in the ceiling above and then building up your momentum before using your speed to cover a large distance would just be too much fun.
