There are many ways to kill rodents but Jake Easton has designed a truly hands-off, robotic mousetrap system called ‘Better Mousetrap.’ This shiny, sleek, aluminum robotic mousetrap combines electronic controlled circuitry, a pneumatic actuator and complex solenoids to deliver a 102 pound death blow by way of 40-60 PSI of compressed air.

Watch the video to see this robotic mousetrap in action. Don’t worry--if you’re squeamish, it’s only a plush mouse that gets trapped on film.
