Innovation for those who hate meeces to pieces
If you “build a better mousetrap,” Ralph Waldo Emerson supposedly told us, “the world will beat a path to your door.”
But, c’mon, who does that anymore?
Roger Arquer, it turns out.
Using off-the-shelf items such as beer glasses and soy sauce bottles, Arquer has built traps designed “only to catch mice, not to kill them. It’s up to the catcher to decide the future of the mouse.”
One of his coolest designs he calls Mouse in a Light Bulb. He cuts a large light bulb, lays it on its side, and then inserts a small weight and, natch, a chunk of cheese. When the critter enters, the weight “is released and the light bulb tilts straight up, catching the mouse inside.”
You can see the magic in the three photographs below.
