Sometimes a little technology and a little creativity is all that is needed to do great things. Just ask Mark Rober who is made a living out of creative technology on his YouTube channel. The retired NASA engineer has never stopped engineering and is an advocate for the power of math and science. It can be used as a power for good in the world. It is amazing what we can accomplish when we put these skills to the test and work together for the betterment of us all.
In this video, you will see how Rober used his technology to prank scammers and bring them into the light. After getting caught, the scammers’ last hope is to contact a bail bond agency to stay out of prison temporarily.
One of the interesting pieces of technology that Rober developed was a canister full of cockroaches. That is right, this cannister of creepy crawlies was physically planted inside of a call center. After a short period of time, the cannister unlatched at let the bugs out to wreak havoc on the floor. From the hacked security cameras, we can see scammers quickly jumping out of their chairs and evacuated the area as they discover large bugs crawling all over the floor.
