We've seen plenty of gaming-based papercraft projects, but Solar Mechanic's awesome Portal 2 cubes take the cake. See how I worked a cake reference in there? Clever!

Mike Carson (aka Solar Mechanic) has posted step-by-step instructions for these Portal 2 cubes on his Flickr page, and the end results are impressive. No simple six-sided cubes here: These multi-dimensional recreations are surprisingly accurate to the ones found in Valve's hit sequel. Here's hoping GLaDOS doesn't torch our paper companion cube the second we try to hug it.
