Ex-NASA Engineer's Fart-Laced 'Glitter Bomb' Stuns Package Thieves

Ex-NASA Engineer's Fart-Laced 'Glitter Bomb' Stuns Package Thieves

In a video posted on his channel, the 38-year-old, who helped design the USA space agency's Curiosity Rover, said his engineering experience left him well-placed to "take a stand" after dismissive police left him feeling "powerless". The best part? Rober captured all the perpetrators' reactions in his popular YouTube video.

"I challenge anyone who thinks packages don't get stolen to put a cellophane-wrapped HomePod box on their porch and leave it there day after day and see just how honest people are", Rober told The Post.

Of course, there are easier ways of catching a thief than engineering your own glitter and fart spray bomb.

An alleged thief stole a NASA engineer's package, and he came up with an epic revenge by designing a fake Amazon box complete with Global Positioning System, a glitter bomb, a stink bomb and hidden cellphones to record their reaction.

The package also has a built-in Global Positioning System locator and accelerometer, which prompt the phones to start recording if the box is moved.

Rober made a decision to record videos of people attempting to steal the device, which has been in the Apple Homepod box. The best part is that Rober used cameras and Global Positioning System technology to recover the device and use it over and over again, all while recording thieves' reactions.

He said he created the bomb to explode when thieves tried to take packages off his porch. Rober explains exactly how everything works in the YouTube video below, but basically, when an unsuspecting thief opens up the package, glitter shoots out everywhere, fart smells fill up their location - and four Android smartphones record everything and upload the footage to the cloud. The phones are housed in a container that doesn't immediately reveal what they are and, as a lovely cherry on top, there's a fart spray that gets deployed five times every thirty seconds.

"No joke, you can clear a room with one spray of this stuff", Rober said.
