Man Fools Package Thieves With Farting Glitter BombNewser — Evann Gastaldo
Mark Rober felt violated when a package was stolen off his doorstep a few months back, so he decided to get revenge—in a big way. Rober, an engineer who has worked on NASA's Curiosity Rover, joined forces with a friend who makes custom circuit boards to create a high-tech decoy package, USA Today reports.
The package, which was designed to look like an Apple HomePod delivered via Amazon, combined a number of amazing features: It was a glitter bomb that shot glitter everywhere when it opened; it also sprayed fart spray every 30 seconds and recorded the whole experience from four different angles to ensure the thief's reaction upon opening the package was captured on video.
