Package Thief vs. Glitter Bomb Trap Designed By A Former NASA Engineer

There is a growing epidemic of package theft in America today, but one former NASA engineer is taking action.  Mark Rober spent six months designing a package that would douse package thieves in glitter and fart spray, and the video that he just posted to YouTube showing the results of his “experiment” already has more than 15 million views.  If you have not seen it yet, you should definitely check it out.  According to Fortune, Rober actually helped design the Curiosity Rover, but now he has become a global YouTube star…

Mark Rober used to work at NASA and helped design the Curiosity Rover, but he left that job to pursue a higher calling: glitter bombing people who steal packages from his front porch.

Rober, who is now a YouTube star, was getting frustrated that delivery packages were getting stolen from his front porch, so he came up with a way to deter the people who were doing it. Over a painstaking six months of development, Rober figured out a way to douse the would-be robbers in glitter and fart spray—and capture the whole thing on camera.
