Valve totally stole design of Companion Cube from Star Wars
 I'm hanging in the living room and Bri is on the treadmill running and watching a movie when she screams out for me to come.

She has made a remarkable discovery - the design for the Companion Cube from Valve's videogame "Portal" is quite similar to some storage cubes in Star Wars (ANH).  This is from the scene wherein our heros are about to get into the Milennium Falcon for the first time.

OMG!


Oh, and then there's that scene wherein the troops bring the scanning equipment/Companion cubes onto the Falcon.

Of course . .

. . . Star Wars out and out stole the design for space armor from Doc Smith (and there's an awful lot else of the Star Wars space opera that they liberally "borrowed" from Doc Smith)!
