The Game Theorists

År siden

One of the questions people have been asking for the LONGEST time is finally being answer TODAY. Do Portal's Long Fall Boots actually work? In the game we see Chell jumping from crazy heights, at insane speeds, and landing with no injury to her body in sight. To be honest, looking at those glorified socks it is hard to believe these devices could work. Today Austin is going to finally put an end to this debate - with SCIENCE!

Our boots are not broken, your head is broken because you forgot that the Aperture Science Advanced Knee Replacement (ASAKR) later replaced with Aperture Science Long Fall Boots (ASLFB) actually are more than just a strip of metal, they actually reach all the way up to your neck.

What if the same thing happens but in minecraft, with the water. You can practically fall from whatever distance you want, you only need 1 bucket of water and a good timing... and you are alive, no scratch, no damage, nothing How could that thing be possible and if somehow is possible how much water, speed, ect... would you really need to make this landing true

Now that I think about it I don’t think the spring has anything to do with keeping her legs from breaking I think it’s just keeping her heels of the ground

The floor and walls have's mechanical arms that absorbed some of the impact. You can see GLaDOS putting test chamber 14 together and you can see the mechanical arms I imagine it would be like WWE's wrestling ring.

Consider the properties of repulsion and propulsion gels as may be incorporated into shock absorbing footwear. If that doesn’t work also consider the possibility of gels with inverted properties of repulsion and propulsion as fanonical explanations.

Are you actually that stupid? There has to be some sort of gravitational f***ery to allow Chell to only fall at 52 MPH in a free-fall as terminal velocity, or the speed you cap out at while in free-fall, is in excess of 120 MPH when at maximum surface area is slowing you down, let alone when standing straight upright. Edit: Fixed Chell's name to have two "L"s in it.

Aww come on Austin, In a game that you have a PORTAL GUN and two A.I's . They probably added something from Atlas or P-body that makes the long fall boots work! And using the hitting the wall won't work, coz how do you know that the long fall boots and/or the portal gun make a force field?

That explains all of the falling from every game that has no fall damage i am looking at you monster hunter series.

I believe that the furthest Chell falls is down to the bottom of the Enrichment Shaft from the central AI chamber at the top of the Enrichment Center.

like let me finish it simple. boots are also portal technology. They transfer the jump energy to another dimmension. and heel is a proxy. thats why you stop instant. All velocity, kinetic energy bam! another dimension

No, no, the question is if there could be technology that could reduce the damage from a 3 story drop, not the ones from Portal, some realistic long fall boots
