Fake package covers porch pirates in glitter and fart spray

Some Bloke Made A Glitter Fart Bomb To Get Revenge On Xmas Package Thieves

In a video posted on his channel, the 38-year-old, who helped design the US space agency's Curiosity Rover, said his engineering experience left him well-placed to "take a stand" after dismissive police left him feeling "powerless".

"If anyone was going to make a revenge bait package and over-engineer the crap out of it, it was going to be me", Rober said, according to BBC News.

A former NASA engineer and BYU grad had his video go viral this week for creating a glitter bomb trap that tricks thieves trying to steal Christmas gifts.

Frustrated after having a package stolen from his doorway and the lack of any action from the police, Rober made a decision to take things in his own hand.

Rober spent several months creating a fake package that, once opened, showers a thief with glitter and a fart spray that would deploy the moment it's opened.

If he couldn't recover the package, the video would at least automatically upload to the cloud.

A custom circuit circuit board will check the Global Positioning System location of the package when it's moved from the porch. Rober even built four phones into the contraption to work as Global Positioning System tracking and four cameras to watch the thieves' reactions. Their shiny revenge device had to look like a typical parcel, detect when it would be picked up from a porch, unleash the glitter and fart smell on time, provide a location post-stealing, and ultimately capture each thief's reaction.

The video already has over 7 million views, as of Tuesday morning. Remember the great way he foiled the robberies of Harry and Marv?

Moral of the story: Don't steal other people's packages!
