Worried that your whiz bang looping, morphing, 12 oscillator synth hardware is going to be scooped up from your porch this Xmas before you can get to it?

Try what this NASA engineer did. :D :D :D

Ex-NASA Engineer's Fart-Laced 'Glitter Bomb' Stuns Package Thieves

Rober, a former NASA engineer who worked on the Curiosity rover, put his smarts to a more earthly concern recently: stopping jerks who pilfer holiday package deliveries.

Rober, himself a victim, spent six months developing a baited box that blasts glitter and fart spray on would-be thieves when they open their surprise. The device also takes cellphone video of the culprits, uploads the footage to the cloud and can be tracked by GPS.

Rober’s viral YouTube video, posted Monday, covers the development of his clever boxes of whoop-ass, but the best part is watching them detonate on real suspects. The most common reaction was: “What the ****!?”

MERRY XMAS!!!! :D :D :D

I saw this too, absolutely brilliant! :D :D :D

I'm amazed that nicking parcels from doorsteps is so common though, I hope those thieves learned their lesson.
