Man I'm glad I made it. That first chamber had me concerned. The Cobalt room was intense until I remembered what to do. The final one was fairly easy for me. I figured out that you could jump off the other angled panel to get the right momentum for the cube button. I can see how hard you worked building and testing this one. Thank you.
Here's one you'll like I'm sure. Smoke and Mirrors

That was a very good test chamber.

Re-reading my initial comment, I see that I misremembered my method and for some reason I included "the cube" as one of the things I did not use. Duh. Of course, that was wrong... as you said, you can only activate the funnel with the cube! I must've been thinking about something else. I just played all your "elements" chambers, and my brain is addled. Hehe.

Perfect, thanks, that's pretty crafty, I remember it kind of annoyed me that I couldn't close that gap between the laser grids but I didn't think it affected the solution. Unfortunately, I still can't close that gap but there's an easier fix which I've now added as for a hint; one of your portals in the video is in the right place, the other isn't and the first move is a rather speedy jump.

Okay, here:
To be perfectly honest I initially spent about 5 minutes trying to work out the proper way to complete this, before giving up and just forcing my way through! I tend to break chambers a lot that way :)
Perhaps you could advise the correct way.

I'll try and make a video.. but you'll have to give me a bit of time, as I have work! :)

I don't see how you could use the funnel at all without the cube given that the cube is the only item that can activate it. The player also shouldn't have access to that level of vertical momentum without the cube either as the same cube button also activates the only white surface at the right height to reach the funnel. Could you elaborate a bit? Screenshots, more detailed descriptions, a video would be best, any way of demonstrating exactly what ninja skills were used.

I could not find a use for the laser; the cube; or the moving platform in the first room. After a few minutes trying to work out how to get the cube (and myself) up to the platform, I eventually managed it by ninja skills: avoiding the red laser fields and just get to the button on the far side of the room. Therefore was able to fling myself up to the blue funnel without use of the cube & platform etc.

Fixed it so that your method is no longer possible. The speed gel jump is most definitely possible just difficult. If you really did the flings right, you would land squarely on the pressure button. Thanks for playing, and particularly for finding that alternative jump in the first room.

Didn't bother with the speed gel in the first room because I really think the jump is impossible. Just set up portals on the ceiling and floor, build up some speed and move the ceiling portal back to the floor and time it so you fly up to the moving platform. Then just portal the cube up to you.. I also gave up in the last room because even when I think I did the flings right I still smacked into the cube dropper. Way too fiddly.
