ONEDOWN: IDEA 2010 Student Gold Award
ONEDOWN is a humane rat trap. The trap rests precariously in a horizontal position on a circular foot. Bait inside would lure the rat into the trap, a metal insert in the base coupled with the weight of the rat will tip the trap and bring it to a vertical position indicating that a rat has been trapped. Then the rat can be released instead of killed.
“This is a charming concept of a humane mouse trap. We loved the simple idea, and how the problem is elegantly solved. There is a place for poetry in the great design.” –Fumi Watanabe, Starbucks

I love this idea…especially after my unfortunate “spatula experience” with a mouse-trap device that prided itself on being humane! I think not.
Most definitely a better mouse trap. I also like the way the product instantly and visually conveys a capture. Watch out if you have a cat though.
