Gamers aren't exactly viewed in the most positive light, so Harrison Krix decided to challenge that perception by designing the Gravity Gun for Child's Play, an organization that helps hospitalized children.

Those who play Half-Life will definitely recognize the Gravity Gun for Child's Play. Unlike many DIY projects, Krix designed the item for a greater good. This was specifically built for the aforementioned organization, which aims to improve the lives of hospitalized children with video games and toys. Each year, Child's Play holds a charity dinner in Seattle where an auction will take place. The Gravity Gun will be one of the many items put up for auction. All the money purchased from the replica will go to the organization so that they can purchase games for hospitals and therapy facilities.
