This might be my Magnum Opus. Please see my comments below with regards to reports the video was partially faked.
My buddy Sean posted a video with more details of the build:
Note about 2 missing the reactions in the video (I posted this on all my social channels immediately after it happened)- I was presented with information that caused me to doubt the veracity of 2 of the 5 reactions in the video. These were reactions that were captured during a two week period while the device was at house 2 hours away from where I live. I put a feeler out for people willing to put a package on their porch and this person (who is a friend of a friend) volunteered to help. To compensate them for their time and willingness to risk putting a package on their porch I offered financial compensation for any successful recoveries of the package. It appears (and I've since confirmed) in these two cases, the “thieves" were actually acquaintances of the person helping me. From the footage I received from the phones which intentionally only record at specific times, this wasn’t clear to me. I have since removed those reactions from the original video (originally 6:26-7:59). I’m really sorry about this. Ultimately, I am responsible for the content that goes on my channel and I should have done more here. I can vouch for that the reactions were genuine when the package was taken from my house. Having said that, I know my credibility is damaged but I encourage you to look at the types of videos I’ve been making for the past 7 years. This is my first ever video with some kind of “prank" and like I mentioned in the video, it’s pretty removed from my comfort zone and I should have done more. I’m especially gutted because so much thought, time, money and effort went into building the device and I hope this doesn’t just taint the entire effort as “fake". It genuinely works (like all the other things I’ve built on my channel) and we’ve made all the code and build info public. Again, I’m sorry for putting something up on my channel that was misleading. That is totally on me and I will take all necessary steps to make sure it won’t happen again.

Summary: I got upset that my package was stolen so I made a glitter bomb revenge package.
They are soft-

I make videos like this once a month all year long while supplies last:

This guy took a package from my porch and now he's about to open it in his car. But what he doesn't know is this is a custom-built bait package that is recording him on four different cameras and it's about to unleash a pound of the world's finest glitter, along with some other surprises, but to understand how he got to this point. First, we need to rewind a bit about seven months ago. I noticed a package being reported as delivered, but it never arrived.

So when i checked our security cameras, i noticed this lovely couple out for a stroll, as you can see, they have backpacks on and they're just going around the neighborhood making an afternoon out of this. If you've ever been in a situation like this, you just sort of feel violated, and then i took this to the police and even with the video evidence, they said it's just not worth their time to look into so then you also feel powerless. I just felt like something needs to be done to take a stand against dishonest punks like this, and then i was like hold up. I built a dartboard that moves to get a bullseye every time.

I spent nine years designing hardware, that's currently roving around on another freaking planet. If anyone was going to make a revenge bait package and over-engineer the crap out of it, it was going to be me, so i started with a sketch and some cad, and then i hit up my buddy shawn, who was really good with this type of small Electronic stuff and we got to work ultimately when they opened the package. I just wanted to celebrate their choice of profession with a cloud of glitter, because i mean who doesn't love glitter, that's easy. I could just do that passively with like a spring when it opens, but i also wanted to record their reaction and that's what makes the engineering here an order of magnitude more difficult, because if you think about it, this thing has to sit on a porch all Day and it can't be plugged in and you have no idea when someone will come and pick this up.

So it's not like you could just hit record on the camera and then put it in the box, because you're gon na run out of battery and storage space. On top of that, i need some way to recover this footage. In case i never get the bait package back so after six months and lots of design, iterations and so much testing. Here's where we landed this custom printed circuit board is the brains of the operation.

It has a built-in accelerometer and when it's jostled, it will check the gps signal to see if it's been moved from the porch. And if so, it sends a signal to all the phones to wake up and start recording and i'm using four phones that have a wide angle, filming mode and are angled back, and this 3d printed portion is contoured this way, because it represents the field of view Of the phones, so, as you can see, i'm guaranteed to capture their reaction, no matter which way they open it from and nestled in here we've got a can of fart spray, no joke! You can clear a room with one spray of this stuff, so we made a cam on a small motor that sprays it five times, and not only is this just a nice touch, but we keep repeating five sprays every 30 seconds until they throw the package out Of their car or house before they realize there's four phones inside this increases our chances of finding it because we always know the package location at all times due to the gps on the phones. But even if we don't recover it, all four phones have lte data plans, so they upload the footage to the cloud. So i can still see what happens and then for the ps3 resistors.

We have a cup here on top that spins from a motor underneath. So once you load in a butt ton of the world's finest glitter, the motor spins really fast and the centrifugal force fires it evenly in all directions, then we cut holes in the side of the lid and covered them with one-way film. So two of the cameras could see them as they walked away and then, finally, to make it look like an actual delivered package, we added some shrink, wrap and a delivery label, which is perhaps my favorite part of the whole thing, because if the thief wasn't in Such a hurry they'd see that the package is actually coming from my childhood hero and inspiration for this project. Kevin mcallister i even looked up and am using the address of the actual house.

They filmed the movie in and, of course, it's being shipped to his boys. Harry and marv and there's a charge port in the bottom, because if it doesn't get stolen in a given day, i can bring it in and then recharge all the batteries in the system overnight. So the idea is the bad guy comes and takes it off. Your porch then lifts the lid and these two limit switches tell the circuit board brain inside that the lid's been removed, and then that sets everything in motion and i may be biased, but sometimes a well-engineered design is beautiful because the phones have gps.

We created a virtual geofence around my house, so i get a notification when the package has been moved off the property, so i put it on the porch and now all that was left to do was wait. Okay, so i was at work and i got a notification that the geofence we set up had been tripped. So then i checked the cameras and sure enough. The package is gone, so i checked the gps and sort of tracked it and it appears they're in a car because they seem to leave my house pretty quickly.

But it seems to have stopped in a parking garage which is where i'm headed to now and if you're new here this isn't a prank channel. So i am completely out of my comfort zone and there she is. Oh, oh see some glitter. This is like recovering the black box of a crashed airplane.

It would still work, even if i didn't get the box back. The footage would upload to the cloud, but it's just faster to plug the phones in so i'm gon na go home and find out how this somehow ended up here. So it appears he was walking down the sidewalk and then suddenly makes a hard left. Then he takes the package and gets at his car and eventually makes it to this parking garage where this glorious sequence unfolds no way.

Look at that dude. Look at my car, dude everything! Oh my god! I don't know what this is literally like everywhere. Oh get out of here, but you shouldn't even grab that what the get out of here take this stuff out of here. Keep that change you, filthy animal, so the moral of the story is just don't take other people's stuff.

Not only is it not cool but on the plus side, you'll never find yourself in this situation, or perhaps even worse. This one get in here like who you had in here.

    This guy has to find a way to sell these things I would definitely buy one

    Lol I was watching him explain how this works, and how the glitter is sprayed, and in white text at the bottom it says “yes I know centrifugal force is a construct” and I’m like 👁👄👁 what

    Hopefully you have looked past all the drama that happened with this video.

    You’re kinda cool
    You’re son? He’s awesome!

    Wow I am sooo impressed, that's what those thieves deserve

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars YBP Entertainment says:

    I get alot of packages delivered to my house. I love this video. That's what they get.

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars C says:

    So if you made something that might just leave a little tiny scar ( or big one) on the wicked thieves, could you get in trouble?

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Faulton says:

    Why didnt u just make a mini camera instead of using phones?
    Surely u can make a mini camera with all the phone abilities

    If your doorbell camera doesn't do this

    Whistle on package theif
