Don't steal from anyone this Christmas (or ever), especially a NASA engineer

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

Smart home company Nest announced an over-the-air update for its indoor Cam IQ security camera that brings support for Google Assistant.

Mark Rober is a mechanical engineer who spent nine years at NASA, 7 of them working on the Curiosity Rover.

A porch pirate in Brea thought he scored with a fancy electronic gadget, but was instead hit with a glitter bomb developed by a former NASA engineer.

Rober spent six months combining Global Positioning System tracking, cameras, fart spray and glitter in an elaborate and amusing mechanism after discovering thieves had stolen an Amazon delivery from his doorstep.

Everytime the thief opened the package they were sprayed with glitter and swiftly abandoned the contraption.

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

A colorful mushroom cloud of glitter awaits package thieves in Mark Rober's prank. A Global Positioning System tracker in the phones would let him know where a package ultimately ended up. Rober even built four phones into the contraption to work as Global Positioning System tracking and four cameras to watch the thieves' reactions. There was obviously oodles of world's finest glitter to greet the thieves.

He said he created the bomb to explode when thieves tried to take packages off his porch.

In keeping with the holiday season, he even drew inspiration from his "hero" and fellow prankster, "Home Alone's" Kevin McCallister, including his name on the box's fake delivery label.

Rober's viral YouTube video, posted Monday, covers the development of his clever boxes of whoop-ass, but the best part is watching them detonate on real suspects.

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