Mecha Venus Flytrap

flycatcherdeviceHouse full of pesky flies? Want to get rid of them? Want to do it in style? This Flycatcher has a special non-toxic bait at the bottom of the jaws to lure the fly in. When the sensors detect the insect, they shut the jaws and swat it dead. And then? Then it’ll burp! And do it over again. Very cool!

I just don’t want to be the one to clean up the unavoidable mound of dead flies… By the way, I’m pretty sure Gizmodo broke the product page by linking to them, but apparently you can purchase the catcher for 36$ and an extra 4$ for the bait. You’ll just have to wait until the site is fixed and go see.
