NASA Engineer Thwarts Holiday Package Porch Thieves with Fart-Scented Glitter Bomb

NASA Engineer Thwarts Holiday Package Porch Thieves with Fart-Scented Glitter Bomb

Package thieves, aka the scum of the earth, are a HUGE problem - especially around the holidays!

He worked with friend Sean Hodgins to design the device, which took about six months, USA Today reported.

Mark Rober said a woman was caught on his home security camera walking up to his door and stealing a package off of his porch.

They say revenge is a dish best served cold. See the fantastic reactions of several thieves when they get blasted with fabulosity and FART SPRAY (above)!

A former NASA engineer has devised an elaborate way to deal with parcel thieves after police told him they were unable to investigate his case in Los Angeles County.




Mr Rober's YouTube video has so far had more than 6 million views.

Frustrated after having a package stolen from his doorway and the lack of any action from the police, Rober chose to take things in his own hand. When it's moved, the Global Positioning System tracker checks to see if it's no longer on the porch, if so, the four included smartphones start recording and the footage is uploaded to the cloud.

It shows how Rober connected four phones to a GPS-connected circuit board inside an Apple box.

We see a series of delicious reactions to the glitter bomb and stink spray as they go off in thieves' cars and homes. Once completed, he slapped a packing label addressed from the "Home Alone" character Kevin McCallister to movie villains Harry and Marv - a nice, figurative bow on the present.

Before the phones could be discovered, a touch of the package activated a mechanism that dispatched the fart spray. Rober concludes, "So the moral of the story is, just don't take other people's stuff". You never know what you'll get.
