Elon Musk’s The Boring Company is renowned for its scheme of taking cars underground to manage traffic, but its latest invention was completely unexpected. Their self-titled “The Boring Company Flamethrower” is available now for a $500 pre-order with no shipping date, but the guarantee of the “worlds-safest fire-breathing weapon”. There is also a $30 branded fire extinguisher, just in case things get too out of hand.
Elon Musk has put up 20,000 for sale, which are all legal. Elon himself has said the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms allows throwers with flames shorter than 10 feet. This regulation gives a rough idea of the extent of flames the device will produce.
But why a flamethrower you may ask? This is a novelty product which has been released due to the Boring Company hats being sold out. Elon Musk promised to sell a flamethrower when the hats ran out, and he’s certainly managed to fulfil his promise. We can only look forward to what new novelty product will be launched after the Flamethrower.
