Boring Co.'s "Not a Flamethrower" Still Ignites Excitement

Eileen GuzmanJun 12, 2018

Musk said the device was renamed Not-a-Flamethrower, "due to recent regulatory/customs rules enacted to inhibit transport of anything called a Flamethrower".

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.

Maybe the family that burns together stays together.

As such, Musk and SpaceX engineer Steve Davis thought that it would be a much better idea to do custom deliveries of the flamethrowers for those that had purchased them, according to Teslarati.

Following the success of the flamethrower, Musk has started to tease the next Boring Company promotional product. This suggestion probably should have a "Kids, do not try this at home" caution, because you know that's what people will do. No more need to use a dainty "match" to ignite! It will generate way more warmth than a quaint pile of logs'.

The Boring Company, Elon Musk's tunneling venture, began selling flamethrowers in January for $500, and it quickly sold all 20,000 it had listed. "Have some respect for the Firefighters and make an Ice Blaster".

But The Boring Company had an even bigger surprise for their customers, and this was to hold a special flamethrower pick up party on June 9 in Los Angeles so that the first thousand flamethrowers could be personally distributed, something that has gone down as a treat with buyers.

The billionaire said his company will ship a so-called "ice blaster" before the winter. The most eager customers can forgo the bidding process and pay the eBay "buy it now price", which is as high as $20,000. Musk has taken a cheeky approach to addressing those concerns.

The billionaire inventor and chief executive of Tesla and SpaceX announced the sale of the flamethrower past year.
