Submission + - Weta Workshop creates life-size Half-Life sentry turret for Valve (stuff.co.nz)

nut writes: Weta Workshops, the Wellington, NZ special effects company behind King Kong and Lord of the Rings has built a working sentry Aperture Science Sentry Turret for Valve Software. It does everything except fire live ammunition. Weta would consider making the devices for the public if Valve were prepared to license it — but it won't be cheap. Says director Sir Richard Taylor, "It's little less pricey than a piece of military hardware from the USA Government — and a bit more expensive than a piece from the New Zealand Government."

The trouble with a lot of self-made men is that they worship their creator.
