BYU degree inventes glitter bomb with spear spray to deter packet jams – and millions watch the video on YouTube

A BYU degree / engineer / inventor, frustrated that the packages were stolen outside the porch, came up with an "over-constructed monstrosity" – a fake packet that explodes with glitter and sprays the frogs on the thieves. And he has received more than 10 million views on YouTube with his video about the device from Tuesday afternoon.

A BYU degree / engineer / inventor, frustrated that the packages were stolen outside the porch, came up with an “over-constructed monstrosity” – a fake packet that explodes with glitter and sprays the frogs on the thieves.

And he has received more than 10 million views on YouTube with his video about the device from Tuesday afternoon.

Mark Rober, graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in mechanical engineering, received a master’s degree from the USC and spent nine years at work on NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, said in the video that he “felt kind of offended” when he realized that a package had been swept from its porch.

His security cameras caught the thief in the law. “I brought this to the police, and even with the video they said it’s just not worth their time to watch.” It left Rober’s feeling “powerless.”

“I just felt like something has to be done to take a stand for junk punks like this,” he says. “And then I was like holding up! I built a dartboard that moves to get a bull eye every time. I spent nine years designing hardware that is currently calling around on another freaking planet. “

(He worked on the roots of Curiosity, which is now on Mars.)

” If anyone … would make a revenge of false packages and over-manipulate the shit out of it, it would be me. “

With the help of a friend, Rober spent six months designing and creating a device that, when the box opens, shines glitter everywhere and releases spray spray.

It contains four phones that take video that is charging and GPS that makes it Rober’s ability to get the package when the thieves throw it out of their car … what happens several times.

“So the moral of history is just do not take other people’s things,” says Rober in the video. “Not only is it not cool, but on the positive side, you will never find yourself in this situation.”

Rober, 38, is no YouTube beginner. He also hosted a short-term show on the Science Channel, has appeared on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and founded Digital Dudz (as he sold, but remains as head creative officer).

Not only is his glitter-bomb video racking

  • “This has to be sold in [a] store,” wrote a commentary.
  • “I would buy this product for a lot of money.” [19659014] “Sell it on Amazon. I would totally buy this.”

Rober disappears the faces of the thieves in 10-minute video and bleeds its curses. The video has had almost half a million likes on YouTube, but judging from the comments, many people would like it even more if the glitter bomb had been more harmful. Even mortal.

  • “You should do it again, but instead of glitter, use ink like stains.”
  • “I wish he added a kind of fluid that stinks, penetrates lightly into fabric and [is] to really mess with them.”
  • “Should have used the blue explosion they put in bankbags on robbery. “
  • ” I think a version of splash paint would be appropriate (sic) punishment because it would come everywhere and be almost impossible to clean up. “
  • ” Replace the glitter with a few thousand fleas and we’ll talk. Or you can use high-strength staple powder. “
  • ” And add pepper spray. “
  • ” Bomb inside instead? “
  • ” Or Anthrax traces to replace the glitter. You can not steal when you die. “
  • “Do it with mustard gas”.
  • “Do not make a spikbom anymore?”
