How does the Portal gun work?
I mean it in a game aspect. Like how it creates them in the game. And why they can't pass trough portals but Half Life Bullets can.

The physics of Portal is very hard to explain. They had to modify the Source engine's physics system to allow a certain weapon to be able to alter the environment. That's all I can explain.

It makes sense to me how it works, but what really fascinates me is the images inside the portals. How it can reflect 3d models dynamically like that.

What do you mean by "reflect"?
