Life-size Portal gun to shoot onto shelves soon

Hole in the wall

Application security programs and practises

Despite the fact they generally sit on the mantlepiece as a decorative reminder of where one's interest lies, replica weapons are a big business and gaming enthusiasts are an eager audience to target.

Fans of Valve's Portal franchise are the latest group in sight. They're being pitched with this 1:1 scale model from the series.

The Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device

The Aperture Science Handheld Portal gun, from popular Japanese replica manufacturer Neca, won't open holes through your walls, floors and ceilings, but it'll still be a blast to own one.

It even glows blue and orange depending on which space-hopping door you choose to imagine yourself creating.

The Portal gun can be yours for ¥16,000 (£131). The company started taking advance orders this week.

That may seem a lot for a weapon that would struggle to cause any kind of damage, but you can bet your bottom dollar that it could be used to startle any burglars into leaving a rather smelly DNA depositary behind as they dash for the window in which they entered.

Or maybe not.

The Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device starts shipping in April. Holy moley. ®
