Nice Try Rodent: Robotic Mousetrap Doesn’t Let A Single Mouse Go Free


This unsuspecting ball of rodent doesn’t know it yet, but its days are numbered. In fact. its seconds are numbered. But somehow, I think he does knows. If it was ever possible to see a rodent give a look of self-awareness, I think this is it. He’s come to terms with his death. He plans on savoring every last morsel of cheese.

Jake Easton created this “Better Moustrap,” a mousetrap which is… well, better than the old wooden jobies you’re used too. Equipped with a complex series of solenoids, electronic control circuitry and a heavy-duty pneumatic actuator, no mouse, and lets be honest, nary a human, would be a match for this trap.
