Elon Musk's Boring Company is selling a flamethrower for $500

After capturing the world's imagination by launching world-class electric cars and space rockets, Elon Musk, the founder of SpaceX is entering a newer market: Flamethrowers. Musk confirmed that the Boring Company is selling a flamethrower for $500.


Founded in late 2016, the Boring Company's mission is to bring down the cost of underground tunneling. But while it's working on that, it has become a platform for Musk to launch goofy side projects. Last year, Musk sold 50,000 Boring Company hats for $20 a piece. The idea of selling flamethrowers originated when Musk promised his Twitter followers he would do so if Boring sold 50,000 hats.


The flamethrowers are available for pre-order at $500 each, which doesn't include the optional $30 for a matching fire extinguisher. Musk assured consumers on Twitter that he wasn't trying to mastermind doomsday to generate sales.

Great for roasting nuts 🔥 🥜

When asked about the product's legality, Musk said, "ATF says any flamethrower with a flame shorter than 10 ft is A-ok." The company said in a statement that its product is shorter than 10 feet.

Boring Company will ship flamethrowers out in the spring, according to their website.
