After having numerous packages stolen directly from his front porch, a YouTuber and engineer made a decision to take matters into his own hands by creating a fake package which, when opened, covers the thief in glitter and fart spray.

A former NASA engineer, Rober spent six months creating the package, which contained a glitter launcher, a fart sprayer, and four camera phones set up to record every angle of the delightful outcome.

"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. And then I took this to the police, and even with the video evidence, they said it's just not worth their time to look into.

It shows how Rober connected four phones to a GPS-connected circuit board inside an Apple box. "On every occasion, the thieves abandoned the package once it had been triggered and they or their property had been doused in glitter", BBC News reports.

Mark Rober's muse was a package thief.

The LTE-enabled smartphones automatically beam the footage for storage in the cloud, ensuring that Rober will always recover the video, and Global Positioning System built into the camera trap allows Rober to track down and recover the box for reuse - it's inevitably discarded by thieves after the fart spray hits their nose.

The video, which features several thieves opening the trick package, was trending No. 1 on YouTube Tuesday.
