WATCH: Engineer fights porch pirates with glitter bomb

Mark Rober, an engineer with a large social media following who has worked on hardware for the Mars Curiosity Rover, found a hilarious way to fight back against "porch pirates" -- thieves who steal packages from Amazon and the like right from front doors and mailboxes.

He built a package that explodes with glitter when opened. And that's not all -- Rober also equipped the package with a fart-smelling spray and cameras to record the thief's reaction.

The result is nothing short of amazing!
