In all honesty we thought long and hard as to whether we should feature this Motion Sensing Artificial Venus Fly Trap on EP but, whichever way we looked at it, the universal opinion here at EP Towers was that, whilst this really should be rather tacky it’s actually surprisingly cool.
Of course, we could be wrong and, thanks to the fact that you, the reader, has the final ultimate say concerning every item featured on the site we’ve sure we’ll be able to establish whether this is in fact quite as cool as we think it is or whether, as far as you are concerned, we’ve simply lost the plot (we accept, somewhat begrudgingly, that it could transpire to be the latter).
Great for children as well as the office, or squarely at adults who simply refuse to grow up (all hands are raised this end), this Artificial Venus Fly Trap comes with motion sensing technology that, once the trap is baited, will detect the arrival of a fly and act to trap it without killing it (so it can be released back into the wild to irritate someone else and lay eggs/vomit profusely on your neighbours barbecued steak).
Fun, inexorably childish, geeky and humane (a seriously intoxicating combination) this Motion Sensing Artificial Venus Fly Trap retails for around $20.
