PC Mod: Weighted Companion

With all the great, big budget games being released last year, my absolute favourite game of 2007 was Portal. It was such a refreshing experience amongst so many generic attempts with so much focus being laid on graphics. If you haven’t played portal yet I strongly recommend you try it out. One of the “characters” in the game was the Weighted Companion cube, which you would use to make your way through various levels.

I thought it was pretty cool to see that Magnus Persson at bit-tech.net who loved the game had modded a PC to look just like the companion cube. The computer is based on a Via Epia EX1500G and its dimensions are 20Ч20x20 cm. It is not a very powerful computer, therefore it will mainly be used for simpler tasks, however it does look very cool imo.
