Ex-NASA Engineer Creates Stinky Blitter Bomb For Package Thieves

But when he presented the footage to police they said they were unable to investigate.

The package contained a device that looks like an Apple HomePod - that contained a pound of fine glitter plus some potent fart spray.

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.

That someone according to Boing Boing is former NASA-JPL engineer/current science YouTube star Mark Rober and "he ain't playing nice". So Rober, an engineer who worked on NASA's Curiosity rover - a spacecraft which is now collecting data on Mars - chose to take matters into his own hands. However, authorities have been slow to respond and the Federal Bureau of Investigation now keeps no national statistics on the issue.

As the thief opens the package, wires are tripped that cause the motor inside to start spinning, covering those nearby in glitter. Just in case the thief wanted to keep the glitter bomb, he equipped it with a fart spray mechanism that sprays the gas smell five times every 30 seconds.

But Robert went one step further - including four phones recording the thieves' reactions. The GPS also lets Mark see the box's location.

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. 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.

He said in the video, "The moral of the story is, just don't take other peoples' stuff".
