multicatch mousetrap

The Micecube is a sartorially and animal friendly alternative to lethal multiple traps. The catching technique is based on a positively and negatively poled magnetic field which is arranged around three tubes and located on a centrally stored flywheel.Only one of the 3 tubes is accessible for the mouse through a hole in the case. As soon as the mouse, attracted by the bait, enters the tube, the low impulse from their own weight ensures that the magnets repel each other. Thus a rotation of the pipe is induced, wherein the mouse is rotationally supported ejected downwards. Through the discreetly inclined shape of the case a space arises in the ejection radius, in which the mouse is being held captive until the abandonment.
