Glitter Bomb

Mark Rober is a former NASA engineer.

Someone stole a package from me. Police wouldn’t do anything about it so I spent the last 6 months engineering up some vigilante justice. Revenge is a dish best served fabulously.

He spent a lot of time figuring out and testing his fake package. It included an accelerometer, GPS, four phone cameras tripped to turn on and stream video to the cloud when the box was opened, a beautiful glitter bomb cloud and the pièce de résistance… fart spray that turned on regularly so the porch thief would then throw the package away.

I venture to say if he could mass produce these packages, they would sell like crazy. Also, fart spray is apparently something you can actually buy and not from Wile E Coyote’s ACME Corporation.
