Portal 1 Cores

Do/should they get their own articles like the Portal 2 cores have? I know that not much information really exists for them, but I thought I'd ask. If so, I think we could mention (as trivia, of course) that Ellen McLain had mentioned at a convention (Comic Con?) that she had been asked to voice the Anger Core as well as the others, but her voice didn't exactly... sound right, for that role. I'd add it myself, but the first question (P1 Core articles?) should be answered first before I add the trivia anywhere. Sven 17:31, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

It's never wrong, I said one and a half year later. nickiwoll 18:23, 22 June 2013 (UTC)

Core abilities

We've already seen many cores, but how do they work? Do they have a "second eye" with which they can see interfaces of the objects they are interacting with? Or are they just sending binary code strings like we did with Morse code? Some of them (like Virgil and the Portal 1 ones) are capable of connecting to local Wi-Fi or other wireless networks. Again, do they "talk" to the router, or are they just sending signals for it to relay to other objects? How come Virgil could connect to a wireless router in an office block from the 1980s? And why is there never a Core Input Receptacle at a rail? Does that mean that cores were not meant to get into those? Nigel from Aperture Tag is completely rail-based, but in the trailer he is still seen in a receptacle apparently entering a password. And how do they talk to us with no speakers visible (in Aperture Tag, there are speakers, but these are used solely for the music) and with no one else noticing? Do they have a blacklist for that?

To sum it all up, we should start doing some serious research into the story-related articles to make them more canon and complete.

Dot pattern

My friend noticed a pattern: The Morality Core has one dot on each side, and it's the first to be detached. The Curiosity Core has two dots on each side, and it's the second one to be detached, and so on. Does anyone else think it's worth mentioning? 56KPK (talk) 07:06, 27 September 2020 (UTC)

Certainly! Never noticed that detail! Ivan Pozdeev (talk) 07:21, 27 September 2020 (UTC)
