Harrison Krix, the mad scientist Graphic/Prop Designer behind many of our favorite Portal 2 guns, has created another joyful little prop:  GlaDOS.  As a potato.  And, well, she talks!

Krix, who created a Portal 2 gun commissioned by Valve, threw in a functioning GlaDOS spud based on a couple potatoes his wife had bought while out grocery shopping.  Some silicon molds, wiring, and LED lights later, and Chell’s bet friend was born.

Krix has the full process documented at his website, but for a snapshot of the spud chatting away, watch the clip below.
