RaspiTrap is an animal friendly mousetrap, with photo, video and email function.

You may ask, why somebody would build such a mousetrap?
Why not?

Easy,

The mouse enters the Trap. Passes the light barrier. Raspberry detects and activates servo motor. Door closes.
Now the Pi takes a Pic and sends it via IM and Mail.
That's it.

    C.A.D. Design

    First of all I tried the design in Sketchup 8, which is still free

    I could try a few designs virtually to see if everything fits.

    Housing

    To build the housing (350mmx110mm), I used 5mm foamed PVC Sheets.

    So, I could use a cutter as CNC machine :) ?
