Elon Musk's "Boring Company" Flamethrower For $600 Is Real

28 January 2018

The Boring Company Flamethrower is functional, too, as you can see from this Instagram featuring some Boring Co. staff, presumably well safety trained, firing off two of the things IRL.

The Boring Company is letting customers pre-order "the world's safest flamethrower", and founder Elon Musk took to Twitter Saturday night to guarantee the capability of the flamethrower to protect users from zombies.

Musk's Boring Company is literally a company focused on tunnel boring, but it seems like it'll be a while before it has revenue or significant results (even if it's already digging test tunnels). Over 2,000 people have pre-ordered the device so far, according to Musk on Twitter. "Works against hordes of the undead or your money back!" The state has defined flamethrowers as "any nonstationary and transportable device designed or meant to emit or propel a burning stream of combustible or flammable liquid a distance of at least 10 feet". The Boring Company CEO has also stated that the flamethrower is within the legal limits permitted by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, as it produces a flame no more than 10 feet long. Musk tweeted. Musk's infrastructure and tunneling company is offering 20,000 flamethrowers for a cool $500.

The state fire marshal's office did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

The Boring Company also displayed plans on its website in December detailing high-speed underground train tunnels for Los Angeles to solve traffic problems.

The flamethrower will be shipped internationally, but delivery costs and taxes are not included in the price, the company said. On last year's April Fool's Day, Musk tweeted that chemtrails were actually a "message from time-traveling aliens describing the secret of teleportation".
