Have you ever had to set a mouse trap in your home? Regular mouse traps don’t notify you when they have trapped something. RaspiTrap is different. It is a smart mouse trap that takes photos and sends emails when it has trapped a mouse. If you have a smartwatch, you can receive messages from your RaspiTrap on your wrist. It is powered by a Raspberry Pi computer.
The developer built an infrared barrier to detect if a mouse is inside. The scripts for this project are written in Python. Like what you see? More information is available on Instructables.com.
