Maker Faire Austin: Life-Size Mousetrap

Mousetrap was a fun board game to play when you were a kid. Now imagine a life-size version. Sounds cool, right? Make sure to come to Maker Faire Austin, because we have one, and it will be crashing a lot of stuff.

“‘The Maker Faire is all about making things, like a better mousetrap, or at least a life size version of the legendary Mousetrap board game, complete with bathtub and crazy stairs. The only difference with our game is that we have taken the trap that comes down and lands on the mouse and replaced [it] with a two-ton bank safe that we crush things with. We crush things like cars and motorcycles,’ said Mark Perez, mousetrap maker.” Terry McSweeny, ABC 7 News, May 2, 2008

    Hang on, unless Mice are a lot bigger in Austin Texas, the original Mouse trap game is life-sized.

      Ha, ha, you got me, it is life size!

      But then again, don’t they say everything is bigger in Texas?
