On his website, True Dimensions, LEGO hacker Jason Alleman shows off the very cool, completely functional, LEGO mousetrap he built.
Sometime in 2002 I had a mouse rooting around the house and set about building a live trap using
LEGO to catch it. It sort of worked. The mouse triggered it once but managed to escape.
It then decided to leave of it’s own accord before I had a chance to improve the design.
A little more tinkering, and Jason ended up with the model you see here, that successfully caught two errant mice in this kitchen (who were humanely released in a field). Now, I know I’ve got at least one mouse living under the refrigerator in the garage. Maybe this will be the guilt-free solution I’ve been looking for. Bravo, sir!
