A new product improves upon the weaknesses of traditional designs.

One of the most loved design products at this year's International Design Excellence Awards was the OneDown mousetrap, which swings upright from horizontal due to a rodent's own weight, to clearly indicate that it has been trapped. There is no risk of snapping the fingers and creating any mess or smell as the trap doesn't kill the mouse and can easily be deposited outside.

OneDown was a Gold Award Winner, and was created by the DSK ISD International School of Design in India.
