Your Bedroom's Not As Cool As This Kid's Portal Digs

When it comes to amazing childhood bedrooms, this Portal-themed setup is a tough act to follow.

There are days where I really resent that my parents weren't awesome gamers who decided to give me a truly amazing bedroom when I was a kid. Case in point: This adorable little boy just received a Portal-themed room that's almost guaranteed to be cooler than the ratholes we all go home to to sleep in.

Vector Farr - who has one of the best names ever - is the son of James Farr, the animator/director who's probably best known for the Xombie Flash cartoons. Farr decorated his son's bedroom to look like it's straight out of Aperture Laboratories, complete with orange propulsion gel, cake-themed wall scribbles, companion cubes, pressure buttons, and an actual GladOS camera.

As if that's not enough to make you melt with jealousy, it turns out that Vector has a Portal bathroom, too. When I die, I want to come back as one of James Farr's kids.

I have that exact same companion cube plushie :)

The little one on the end table

Micalas:
I think this room is better.

Damn ninja'd

Yeah the other room is a lot better in my opinion, but it looks as if the kid enjoys his room which is good.

Haha, awesome. Always cool to see parents make a kid's fantasy come to life, especially when that kid thinks with Portals.

I admit I'm jealous but I don't hate you little Vector. You enjoy that bedroom.

I personally wouldn't describe it as "truly amazing", I mean the most impressive thing is the nightstand, the rest is just bought posters/plushies. Definitely could've been a bit more inventive with the stuff, also why is there a normal exit graphic on the wall...I guess the stick figure is in the same moving motion as the stick figure on the portal box, but it clearly is just an exit image and not a portal one....so yea the stuff is a bit of a stretch.

That's one lucky kid, I feel happy for him, no jealousy.

Vector.

Vector?

...vector. You know, I can't decide whether that name sounds really dumb or really great.

I can't tell if the kid is spoiled or if I'm just jealous.

I like how his bed has blue sheets. EXTRA BOUNCY!

Vector.

Vector?

As long as he doesn't become an airplane navigator.

This kid is gonna be the envy of his friends, good for him! They should have a portal mirror as well!

The kid's cute and the room's cool.

But I still like my room over his.

Why? Because only I could find my room awesome. Clothes, blankets, and random pieces of paper/old toys from my childhood all over the floor. It feels like home.

I think there might even be a piece of dog doo in there somewhere, which is the only reason I plan on cleaning my room tomorrow.

Something tells me my future girlfriends/room-mates are going to hate me not long after living with me.

I now officially want kids. Ladies, please form an orderly queue ;)

Just like Vector the Crocodile from Knuckles Chaotix

:/

Fuck that name

That is one happy kid. Good for him.

No. No it's not. Though I would love to decorate a room like that once I get my own place. Maybe an office as opposed to a bedroom though. Now that would be pretty fun to do.

The toilet seat should be a blue portal!

NinjaDeathSlap:

Refer them to me if they don't meet your requirements!

Shock and Awe:
They should have a portal mirror as well!

Portal sense dictates that these should also be on opposite ends of the room, facing each other.

There seems to be a child infestation in this scientific child containment area.
A small amount of deadly neurotoxin should take care of that.

Who the hell names their kid Vector? That's a stupid name.

Also, the kid has a f'ing en-suite. Though I guess it wouldn't matter if he didn't. With some clever portals he can probably poop wherever he wants.

too cool

Man, that's awesome! I want a Portal bedroom ;_;

I hate when children of cooler stuff than me.

Wait, no, I just hate children.

Fuck that name

Find the computer room, Shadow!

OT: I really should design a Half-Life or Portal themed room for myself. My mugs and plush headcrab hat aren't enough nerd cred for me.

My one-room flat is decorated kinda to look like underwater place, although filled with terrariums occupied by arachnids and other invertebrates. It helped that I've always liked blue colours and animal themes, so when I moved on my own, I had all this stuff that fitted thematically together.

If I ever have kids they are so going to have all kinds of cool stuff like that.

....

Damn kids and thier now awesome parents...Where was this stuff when I was a kid?! HUH!?

OT: I sure envy the kid for getting such and awesome room. If or when I get kids I am so decorating it akin to something like that.

well, he's the Space Core, and his dad is Space :D

"Because she is watching us..."

Paranoia has never been more fun, apparently. :-D

While the room looks nice...am I the only one who notices how freakin' dangerous for a child (or even an adult) this room is? The kid practically hurt himself twice in the video alone. And it's not something that's hard to fix either.
That piece of "carpet" with orange gel splotch has slightly curved edges (kid even stumbles on it in the video) and his head would land on a) the bed frame or b) the edge of the night stand. Again this might happen to and adult as well.
Secondly, there's a happy and energetic kid with two lava lamps...that's not gonna end well, those things get really hot.
And third, the button below the bed kid puts plush toys on and then steps on them and jumps on the bed...he hit himslef right in the video.
Yeah nothing really happened now, but he's a lively young boy in that kind of room...I hope they got medical insurance.

Haha, that kid is awesome. I'm happy he enjoys his room so much. I'd love to get one of those plushies.

Those parents are awsome!!! I just hope they don't spoil him to much or he may grow up with a superiority complex...
