Guy Actually Builds a Better Mousetrap

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  December 14, 2009

How many times have you heard the phrase “build a better mousetrap,” yet nobody seems to have actually done it? Until now. This modern, high-tech mousetrap is sure to crush the bones of tiny rodentia with greater efficiency and style than ever before.


Built by tinkerer Jake Easton, this mechanical marvel that catches mice with a complex series of solenoids, electronic control circuitry and a heavy-duty pneumatic actuator – all loaded into a shiny polished aluminum case.



After all, why not catch your mice in style?

While you might think the 40 to 60 PSI of compressed air that power the strike hammer with up to 102 lbs. of force is overkill for catching your fine furry friends, you clearly haven’t seen the mice in my neighborhood.
