Elon Musk's Boring Company Releases Its 'Not-A-Flamethrower'

Flame on! Elon Musk says Boring Company delivers its first ‘Not-a-Flamethrowers’

The sale of the flamethrowers netted the Boring Company $10 million.

The devices, priced at 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.

"Like most Americans, I am in awe in of Mr. Musk's genius - the brains behind Tesla, PayPal, SolarCity, and Space X. But as President Truman and Stan Lee have taught us all, "With great power comes great responsibility" he wrote. "Works against hordes of the undead or your money back!"

"We found out that anybody can market a flamethrower so long as it's less than 10 feet, no matter how wide the flame is, and there's absolutely no regulation for it".

"Apparently, some customs agencies are saying they won't allow shipment of anything called a "Flamethrower".

Some customers are already trying to turn a profit on the device.

The "Not A Flamethrower" flamethrower made famous by Elon Musk is officially in the hands of customers. But it appears as though some of them were not that interested in holding onto it, as several have popped up on eBay in the days since. (Late Monday morning, the cheapest one was priced at $2,250.) A listing for just the instruction manual was asking for $250. And some see Musk's latest ploy as particularly reckless and insensitive.

The Boring Company, Musk's tunneling venture, began selling the flamethrowers in January for $500 and quickly sold all of the 20,000 machines it had listed. "I bought something completely awesome and frivolous, so I'm going to also donate $1000 to the California Wildfire Relief Fund", he said on Twitter.
