Portal Turret Egg Cup Gives Breakfast a Scientific Flavor

Bullets: the healthy, low-fat way to start your day.

Everyone knows that eggs are delicious and filled with important nutrients, but it's impossible to deny that they're not very high-tech. Thankfully, one Portal fan has a remedy for our breakfast time woes, with a homemade egg cup that recasts the humble egg as a sleek and stylish Aperture-brand turret.

The egg cup is the work of Instructables user, Supernewby [http://www.instructables.com/member/Supernewby/], who designed it for the site's "Egg-Bot Challenge." It's a simple but elegant design, made mainly out of floral wire, with modeling clay accents.

Supernewby bent the wire around a variety of forms until he had the shape he wanted, and then glued on the clay pieces. The only downside is that in order to get the full turret effect, you have to draw a watchful red eye on each and every egg you eat. That said, as you can see from the picture, the egg turret is so charming, you just might decide it's worth it.

If you want to make your own turret egg cup, you can find full step-by-step instructions here [http://www.instructables.com/id/Make-your-own-Portal-Sentry-Turret-Egg-Cup/]. You don't have to just use white eggs either, because, as Cave Johnson says [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/trailers/3005-Portal-2-Turret], turrets come in hundreds of designer colors, like "Forest," "Desert" and even, "Table."

I want 3 of those please.

I'd totally paint a few soft boiled eggs and make an aperture sentry breakfast. Bonus points for playing Portal 1/2 music while eating.

I just want mine boxed up and shipped straight to my doorstep, so it can protect the things that matter most.
Just try and get close to those bread soldiers.
HAH, you funeral.

It certainly looks egg-syting, along as it's not just a yolk report. Then I've just had un ouef.

You crack me up, little buddy; but no more poaching my best puns, or it will be eggsasperating.

Great! And instead of bullets, this turret is filled to the brim with proteins!
