Engineer Gets Revenge On Porch Pirates With Glitter Bomb

Posted December 19, 2018

Ex-NASA engineer and YouTuber Mark Rober has a common problem: thieves are stealing his Amazon packages right from his front porch.

On Monday, Mark Rober, a former NASA engineer, shared the glitter bomb trap on his YouTube Channel.

Well, porch thieves messed with the wrong guy, because Rober ends up working for months developing what he refers to as his "Magnum Opus": a decoy Amazon delivery package that is actually a glitter bomb which sprays farts and records both audio and video during the whole explosion.

Why?: Rober, who has gone viral on YouTube before, said he caught thieves on his home security camera but the police said they couldn't investigate the case, BBC News reports.

But Marshall's star would only rise once she transitioned from appearing in front of the camera to behind the camera. Actress Cindy Williams co-starred as Shirley in 158 of the series episodes. " Penny Marshall was a sweet woman".

The package was left on Mr Rober's porch addressed to "Kevin McCallister" - the boy played by Macaulay Culkin in the 1990 movie Home Alone. A carefully engineered gadget that would spray glitter in all directions, coupled with four cellular-connected LG G5s (an array of four used for their ultra-wide angle cameras for 360-degree video) and even a fart spray (it turns out, such a thing exists!).

This is unlike the typical bait package with a simple Global Positioning System that police have started leaving around in recent years to thwart thieves. The device also takes cellphone video of the culprits, uploads the footage to the cloud and can be tracked by Global Positioning System. He says, "Ultimately, when they opened the package, I just wanted to celebrate their profession with a cloud of glitter, because, I mean, who doesn't love glitter?"

Though some online have wondered whether Rober hired actors, he insisted all of the recorded footage was of actual package thieves. The phones are housed in a container that doesn't immediately reveal what they are and, as a lovely cherry on top, there's a fart spray that gets deployed five times every thirty seconds.

"The moral of the story is just don't take other people's stuff", Mr Rober said.
