Pretend To Play Portal At Home With Your Own Portal Mirrors

If your house’s interior design can’t wait for portal technology to exist to make that big impact on your guests you could just go and make some fake portals in the meantime. That’s what Redditor Corttana and her husband did and it worked great!

If you look at it you could probably find a hundred different ways to do it yourself. The main ingredients are just mirrors, wood, and rope lights. All you have to do is put them together.

Just remember do not try to go through them! You might not be able to play Portal 2 if you do and that would be a shame.

    I NEED SOME! That way I can stick them facing each other on opposite walls then I can pretend I am just staring through at myself.

    That's brilliant! I would totally love to have those in my house.

    Even if someone came over and didn't know what Portal is, they're still pretty nice pieces.

    Those look pretty snazzy and easy to make. I wouldn't mind having those in my room.
