The device can be snapped on to the accessory hose of your Dyson, or if you have more sense your Vax. The unsuspecting mouse strolls down a clear plastic tube towards the cheese and in doing so, breaks a phoitoelectric detection beam. A Picoduino-controlled partial vacuum cleaner starts up and pulls
Monty down the tube into a transparent chamber before switching the impeller off. A mesh at the back of the chamber in front of the impeller prevents choppage. If the mouse tries to escape, it breaks the beam and the suction starts again. A one-shot indicator illuminates to indicate that the chamber is occupied. You could also be sent an SMS message or email to notify you that the trap has operated. When the user sees that the lamp is on, or receives a text message, he or she slides closed the entry door, detaches the chamber together with occupant, and empties it wherever desired. Select 'continuously on', and a crevice nozzle accessory is also available suitable for probing down radiators and behind the telephone table.
