NASA Engineer Came Up With a Sparkly Way to Thwart Package Thieves

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

After six months of designing and testing, the team unveiled their glitter bomb trap.

So-called "porch pirates" - thieves who steal packages off people's doorsteps - have become an increasing issue as bad actors have sought to take advantage of growing demand for delivery services.

Mark Rober, a former Nasa engineer turned YouTube personality, explains in great detail how he created a glitter-spewing mechanism hooked up to smartphones that both tracked location and filmed the action as it happened.

However, Emery is facing a crisis in defence as he will be without suspended duo Shkodran Mustafi and Sokratis Papastathopoulos . Emery said: "First we need to have the mix in the first 11 with young players and players with experience".

The engineer made a decision to build a "glitter bomb" package as his revenge, coating thieves with sparkles once they opened the box. Rober is popular on YouTube with his various science-related viral videos.

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. In the video titled "Package Thief vs. Glitter Bomb Trap", Rober said he developed the glitter bomb trap after police refused to help him investigate missing parcel incidents. The entire fiasco is recorded via four smartphones that are connected to a circuit board that pings Global Positioning System when the package is jostled.

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

Unfounded bomb threats reported in cities across Canada, U.S.
South of the border, the FBI was investigating the wave of threats and said it was unclear whether the threats are connected. If you've received an email saying that your office will explode if you don't forward on $US20,000 in Bitcoin, stay calm.

The device goes off as soon as the package is opened, spraying a colossal amount of glitter everywhere.

His package is also equipped with a tracking device so he can recover it every time it's taken. Just for reference, Rober says that one spray would be enough to empty an entire room.

He said he created the bomb to explode when thieves tried to take packages off his porch. You never know what you'll get.
