Soon after the package was kept in the doorway, it was stolen by a thief who took it and ran away with it in his vehicle to a nearby parking lot. But for anyone who's gotten a package stolen off a doorstep, he's now a hero. He compiled the footage for a great video called, "Package Thief vs. Glitter Bomb Trap". If so, then it will explode.
Mark Rober said a woman was caught on his home security camera walking up to his door and stealing a package off of his porch.
After six months of designing and testing, the team unveiled their glitter bomb trap.
That someone according to Boing Boing is former NASA-JPL engineer/current science YouTube star Mark Rober and "he ain't playing nice".
Rober installed several cameras inside the device to record their reactions.
If he couldn't recover the package, the video would at least automatically upload to the cloud.
The video was posted Monday - it already has more than 8 million views.

"So the moral of the story is, just don't take other people's stuff", he said.
'Not only is it not cool, but on the plus side, you'll never find yourself in this situation'.

Austin, Texas, was ranked as the No. 1 city where you'll get your package taken.
Interesting facts: Salt Lake City ranked as No. 1 in the top 10 for larceny-theft overall.
