I made an animation along the same lines, Max found it and asked if I would make one for him, so I did.

Oh yes, Skipping the preloader will play static, so please don't.


WOW! the response to this has been unbelievable, thank you for giving this front page I would have never expected that.

I set the quality to low as a stylistic choice, it's not determined by the speed of the computer it's running on.

But mostly I want to say that I'm sorry to the people who got stuck in a static loop; I intended it as a joke poking fun at those among us who skip the preloaders of flash videos. Rather than disable the right click menu I added the static joke.

It seems some concerns have been raised about the viability of this portal gun, allow me to explain.
It uses the Unruh effect (look it up) to create an artificial black hole that interact with the dent in spacetime created by the tachyon x-ray interaction, then the portal gun proceeds to expand the microscopic wormhole using dark energy (that has a negative gravitational pull) pushing the wormhole open and maintaining the portal. The portal gun utilizes the artificial event horizon and the hawking radiation it produces to maintain operational temperatures.

I always appreciate a good portal vid. keep up the good work


Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

Okay...Its Working...

Good video, and great animation, but I think there is an error in your video. After I hit "Play" it would start up the video, but shortly after, it would say "You skipped the preloader, white noise blah blah" even though I didn't do anything (aside from clicking "Play")

After refreshing the page it worked, and it was well worth it. Great video, good animations, good song, good everything.
