Package thieves are out in full force this time of year. These petty thieves can snatch up a package in seconds and oftentimes are hard to track down. Chances are you’ve likely had a package stolen at some point in your life and felt perturbed at the blatant invasion.
A former NASA engineer decided that enough was enough and he set out to create a device that would create quite the pain if stolen all the while recording the thief in action. Disguised as an Apple Speaker, engineer Mark Rober spent 6 months designing a glitter bomb package that relayed back GPS coordinates and real-time video to a cloud server. When stolen, the device would activate its signal and when opened, it sprays glitter in 360 degrees. Check out the work of engineering in the fantastic video below.
