    My buddy Sean posted a video with more details of the build:

    Info coming soon!

    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:

      I think an amazing addition to this would be to ad some method to self destruct the phones after an uploaded video. Say a USB shock to the phone. There fairly easy to make, which is a series of capacitors that can discharge at 120 volts to the USB port. You do have to check the phone because some manufacturers have added some countermeasures to such events. You could put a time loop or a disconnect switch when the phones are removed from the device to trigger the destructive event. I feel this prevent bad guys getting away with 4 phones. You could also get a raspberry pi or an Arduino for cheep and would have a much higher chance of being tossed right after because bad guys probably won't recognize the hardware, and they can't sell it for that much!

      I think a good followup video to this would be about you bringing the evidence to the police (with your cameras in tow) and them explaining on camera why they think that serial theft is not a crime worth pursuing, even when you've done all of the detective work for them.

    Make one of these but it sprays spray-paint. Would ruin some thieves’ cars or clothes. Doubt you could get in legal trouble either.

    7:40 , 9:00 - Those people seem to have nice houses. They don't seem poor. They're just doing this cause it's easy money. The punishment for this needs to be higher, and there needs to be way more sting operations by cops against this. F-ing thieves!

    How about you make the same contraption but one that spread sulfuric acid instead of glitter. Then have a large piece of pure sodium drop in a little water container for a nice boom to along with the disfiguration from the acid.
    That's what they deserve after all. If they don't get scarred they'll do it again 100% of the time.

    It should be easy to the make and model of the car.
    Just casually walk by and look for glitter and the smell lol.
    We can never clean glitter here.
    We still see it months after Christmas and yes we do vaccum and dust.
    I saw one video of people stealing iPhones.
    They took out the guts and rigged a shock device to it.
    That's another great idea.
