People tend to get shopping frenzy and what we fail to see is the busy bee habits that package delivery giants develop owing to the Christmas season. Christmas season is the time for bestowing your love for others by sending packages and gift parcels. Not only the gift packages, but there are also shopping freaks who order their parcels online and wait for them to arrive at their doorsteps. With the Christmas advent, not only do these delivery giants keep themselves busy in delivering packages at the right place, but porch thieves also take advantage of the season to sneak out and find ways to get hold of such parcels. They try to take advantage of unattended packages that are placed at the porches of people’s houses. There are many people who return late to their homes. And, thus these thieves get a chance to gain control over such packages during the holiday season.
With reference to the New York Times, there are thousands of such packages that go missing owing all thanks to porch Pirates who steal the bundle of joy of others who keep waiting for their parcel to arrive.
First Glitter Bomb Discovery
Last Christmas you might have seen a man exploding a glitter bomb which was in the news last year and went viral within a few hours. Yes, we are talking about the famous You Tuber Mark Rober who had designed a glitter bomb for the safety of porch packages. This was a trap for all such porch Pirates that was a viral sensation in 2018. Mark Rober was also a former NASA engineer and had left his job to become a full time ‘you tuber’.
He designed a device to safeguard the porch parcels playing the Glitter bomb vs Porch Pirates game. With the increase in the number of Porch Pirates, Rober volunteered to design a device that could treat such pirates right. He called it a ‘bait package’ which looks precisely like Boss headphone packages that can encourage a thief to steal the package. And as soon as a porch pirate happens to get lured by such a package, they fall into the trap, and their video gets recorded instantly. He has also included a police scanner chatter in his glitter bomb so that the thieves believe that they have been caught by the police. But this bomb is harmless but can reward the thieves rightly by transforming them into a filthy animal.
The idea behind the invention
Rober thought of making a glitter bomb because one of his parcels was stolen from his porch, which triggered him to invent such a device. He had surveillance cameras at his home, but the image of the thief was not clear enough to be identified by the police. Thus Rober did not get a chance to find out the suspect. But for masterminds like him, this was not the end, and he was determined about teaching such suspects a lesson that they deserved. And the result cam in the form of glitter bomb discovery. He was inspired by the famous “home Alone’ movie which also stands to be one of his favorites which made him design this device.
