Mouse
« on: January 23, 2011, 12:27:17 PM »
I have a mouse! Never had one before and not that freaked out so I decided to have some fun and build a trap of my own





Wish me luck!
Anyone built their own to an alternative design? In case my prototype fails...

Mice a notoriously difficult to get rid of. The one in my house has successfully evaded even store-bought traps for the better part of 3 months. Best of luck to you and you trap in you mousing.

Workings of Trap:
Mouse walks up the dark brown broom onto the side of the bin eating the small bits of stilton
Mouse then notices large piece of stilton on pivoting broom
mouse walks onto pivoting broom. overbalancing it
it all falls down, the broom falls over the end of the box (or at least, it did when I tested it) and the mouse falls down into the red plastic box

Ah.  My best guess was..



The mouse is trapped behind the backpacks.  Once they are moved, it will cause the broom to loose it's grip and the giant cylinder will roll down the chair legs, crushing the mouse like a steamroller.

I was hoping to keep the mouse alive to go bother someone else with his new found understanding of moments...

I have a design proposal, just made this.








The mouse notices the shoe and slips on the carboard tube bit, then continues to run backwards on the tube on its hind legs all the way up the boxes before it gets its neck caught in the belt loop and hangs itself. The bin serves as a sort of Plan B.

I've been sitting on a design for a while. Still waiting for a follow-up from the patent office.





Basically, the mouse will come out of my room, notice that I've set dinner out for it (I mean, who the fuck doesn't want some damn Hamburger Helper? Not me!). Excited, it runs forth into the empty vitamin water bottle. In its excitement, it turns its head to the left, and sees the frog. Startled, it runs in the opposite direction, tripping over the allen wrench, and falling down the stairs into a conveniently placed ice cream bucket. Should the mouse run around the box, it should hit it enough to knock the battery off of the box, killing it on impact.

Good trap, but have you considered a more aerodynamic water bottle? It may speed the delivery to the bottom of the stairs.

Likewise, have you considered different types of leather? I'm sure your patent leather would do the job, but I think buckskin leather might make the hanging a bit more smooth. Bonded leather is obviously the best case scenario, but not everybody has access to that.

Ah, quite right. My schematics called for nubuck leather originally, but was scrapped for presentation purposes.

It's the color of the glass. It's supposed to confuse the mouse, but it's also to make him feel comforted, because there's a mouse on the goblet.

This is really weird, I've actually been working on a design for quite a while. Here's my prototype, any constructive criticism would be appreciated.





First, the mouse notices the Ekans card and is scared, so he runs into the vuvuzela. When he comes out the top he jumps down onto the Guitar Hero 2 (NOT Guitar H 3 or Rock Band, this is very important) controller. Because of the drop between the vuvuzela and controller platform there is no where else to go but to make the jump onto the broom handle. Now, the broom handle is supported only by a really big rubber band, so when it tries to grab on he will inevitably slip and fall into the trombone mute... Trapped, forever.

What? Keys attract mice. How else are you supposed to lure them into the area?

Anyway, glau. Your trap looks like it has potential. The only real suggestion I'd have for that one is maybe consider using a cup mute so that if the mouse happens to miss the entrance it could still impale itself on the ridges. The entry point might be a bit small too. Maybe try out a tuba mute?
