Last year, NASA engineer Mark Rober created a device known as the “glitter bomb” which went viral. Basically, the device was to deter and punish porch thieves who steal delivery packages off the porches of unsuspecting home owners. While it was a pretty impressive invention, it did generate some controversy when it was discovered that the “victims” of the glitter bomb were actually friends.
That being said and controversy aside, we can’t deny that this was a very impressive creation and it looks like Rober is back with the Glitter Bomb Trap 2.0. However, instead of merely dousing victims with glitter, Rober decided to draw some inspiration from none other than the Home Alone movies by including a fart spray, where not only would glitter explode out of the package, but a fart smell would accompany it as well. The video even features Macaulay Culkin in which the glitter bomb was inspired by.
In this particular video, Rober sent the packages to several volunteers around the US who left it on their porches to bait would-be thieves, and the reaction of those thieves are pretty hilarious. In fact, one of the thieves was aware of the previous glitter bomb, but apparently it did not seem to deter him. If you have about 20 minutes or so to spare, then check out the Glitter Bomb Trap 2.0 in action in the video above.
