Portal: Revolution Chamber 8 is all about lasers and elevators. Contrary to Portal 1 and 2, lasers don’t hurt you in Portal: Revolution, which is very useful to know in this puzzle. First, place your blue portal on the ground wall and walk through. Press the button to spawn the glass box.

Now, repeat your steps to get up the elevator. Once at the top, place a blue portal on the wall opposite the laser switch. Walk through it and spawn a new glass box.
