Awesome Portal 2 Sentry Turret USB Desk Defender Wants You to Bring It

Listen, if you're not rocking a turret at your desktop, then you're simply not taking computer security seriously enough. You're letting the terrorists win, along with Henry from accounting who's always poking his nose into your cubicle when you're off on a coffee break. A password protected screen saver keeps nosy Nellies at bay, but if you want to send a clear message that your work space is off limits, you need to bring out the big guns.

Portal 2 Turret

The Portal 2 Sentry Turret USB Desk Defender is one such option. Yes, it's forty bucks at ThinkGeek, and that's kind of expensive for a novelty toy, but it's an awesome gadget (and looks to be small enough to wedge in a stocking -- hint, hint). It's also far less expensive than that other Portal Sentry Turret.


Armed with a motion detecting turret, the USB-powered Desk Defender opens up and warns intruders that it's about to bring the pain. The caveat? It doesn't actually decimate passersby, though it does pretend to shoot them with sound effects pulled directly from the game. Hey, it's less mess to clean up.

If you need actual projectiles to send a message, there's always the USB Rocket Launcher, also available at ThinkGeek (for $25).

Hah this is awesome. I love the Portal 1&2 turrets. I was traumatized when I accidentally killed the one in 2 that begged me to save it lol. I really want one, but in my sad lonely apartment it'd just work against me, and at the office I'd get fired for annoying my boss with it.

Cool now multiply the size by about 50 and turn it into a computer case. When the lock screen is up and some one enters a incorrect password it shoots nerf darts.

I would love to have one of these. It wouldn't stop anybody from getting into my computer or anything, but it would sure be cool just to have!

However the price is a little up there for such a toy.

Haha this is just too cool, it would be better if it could at least have the laser pointer that follows and tracks someone nearby, along with the threat of shots that never come...

Any portal players have an innate fear of that red laser being zeroed in on them lol
