Tractor Beams are a testing element in Portal puzzles. They convey anything placed in them in a straight line, removing other influences such as momentum or gravity. They are blue when in the forward state, and will push items away from their base. They are orange when in the reverse state, and will pull items toward their base. Tractor Beams can be sent through portals.
