Elon Musk's Boring Company flamethrowers sell like hot cakes

Jean Garcia | 12 June, 2018, 02:06

Billionaire tech guru Elon Musk showed off pictures of the Boring Company's first commercial flamethrowers being distributed to lines of buyers today - and joked that the device has been renamed "Not a Flamethrower" so as not to run afoul of customs or shipping regulations. Here's a closer look at Musk's many ventures and projects. "For simple & concise instructions, we drew upon wisdom in great Dr Seuss book "Green Eggs and Ham".

The devices, priced at United States dollars 500 (approximately Rs 33,700) apiece, are being marketed and sold through Musk's other company, The Boring Company, which was set up in order to set up a subterranean transit network under Los Angeles to beat the city's endless traffic.

It continued: "I will not use this in a house, I will not point this at my spouse, I will not use this in an unsafe way, The best use is créme brulee". Despite the fact that Elon Musk's flamethrowers are clearly not guns, they fervently objected to Miguel's bill, which was finally quashed, with Santiago noting that "Our bill right now is in the appropriations committee in the suspends file".

The devices - priced at $500 - generated $10 million in sales for the company during its pre-sales earlier this year.

Instead, the Boring Company torch guns function like large propane blowtorches. Don't worry if you can't make it; all Not-a-Flamethrowers will ship out this summer!

She also said the U.S. president wasn't entirely wrong in pressing Germany to increase defence spending. We can't pose a security threat to the United States, and I know that Americans understand that.

Still on a roll, Musk followed up with a suggested application for the flamethrower: lighting BBQs and home fireplaces.

The disclaimer also mandated that consumers check off several boxes under the prompt, "I understand The Boring Company isn't responsible for anything I do, no matter how genius or stupid".

Elon Musk hinted at the Boring Company's plans to launch a "freezegun" in a tweet back in January.

The Boring Company is a tunnel construction business founded in 2016 to provide the infrastructure for an underground Hyperloop. The electric sled would allow for cars to be transported at 150 miles per hour through the tunnel, Musk has said.
