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.

liked the music and the animation. I also liked how we got to watch how the portal gun was created in the style of how portal was. Glados and the compainion cube are still great.<3

You did excellent work here. Great animation as well as very good creativity on how the Portal gun could of been made. I also appreciate the fact that it wasn't with the 'Still Alive' song so nice work on the music. Overall it's and excellent piece.
Although, the problems people have been encountering are quite strange as I've tested this with all browsers and it loaded fine. Maybe it's just software failure but it would be great if this could be fixed for other people.

Never skipped

but yet somehow it kept telling me I was trying to skip the preloader... nor is there a button to attempt skipping it. My question being how was I skipping it when I had no idea how to do it one way or another? Perhaps this is a late or early april fools prank or something

Very funny.

Thank you for not using the Portal song!
I liked this and had no trouble loading it at all.

I suspect that people might have a Web Browser issues and blame you for it.
