Everything you need to know about the Boring Co's Flamethrower

  • Elon Musk's

Back in December, Musk said that if The Boring Company managed to sell 50,000 hats, then the company would start selling flamethrowers. If you're looking to burn a hole in your pocket, Elon Musk's Boring Company is selling the fiery devices for just $500 (plus taxes and shipping), and by all indications, they're going fast.

The entrepreneur, who is also the CEO of auto manufacturing firm Tesla and aerospace firm SpaceX, said Monday that The Boring Company had sold 7,000 flamethrowers. Why Musk wants to get in the flamethrower game is unclear, but he looks likely to move all 20,000 units - despite the, ah, cavalier attitude the company is taking towards their products.

This may be one of the most ridiculous ways to raise money for a business that needs more cash but it is undoubtedly effective.

The flamethrower which looks like a massive black and white gun is priced at United States dollars 500 or Rs 31,800 and pre-order has started.

The Boring Company website claims the flamethrower is the "world's safest" and is "guaranteed to liven up any party!". The name "Boring Company" is a play on words, since the company is actually focused on 'boring' tunnels for trains and his proposed Hyperloop.

Say what you want about Elon Musk, but the dude has a sense of humor. He wrote on Twitter: "When the zombie apocalypse happens, you'll be glad you bought a flamethrower".

What is the Boring Company?

As The Washington Post's Jessica Contrera reported in 2015, flamethrowers face limited regulation because they aren't considered a "firearm", which - unlike a flamethrower - is defined by its ability to expel a projectile using an explosive. The first shipments are expected in early spring but knowing how Tesla's production schedule runs, customers may have to wait a little longer. And to go along with his fiery gadget, he's offering a companion fire extinguisher for just $30.

Apparently, there's a large market for flamethrowers with tunnel boring company branding out there.
