What's more lit than an a Tesla? A flamethrower.
Last December, Elon Musk made a promised on Twitter that “after we sell 50k [Boring Company] hats, we will start selling The Boring Company flamethrower.” This past Christmas Eve, after hitting the sales goal, he tweeted that the flamethrowers were coming “soon!”
Musk isn't just a genius that brought us the Tesla Roadster, he's also a man of his word. The Boring Company flamethrower is here. Redditors discovered earlier this week that the URL “boringcompany.com/flamethrower” started redirecting to a page with a password box. And at least one user was able to guess the original password, too: “flame” (it’s since been changed).
Those lucky enough to get through the password gate was a shop page with a pre-order prompt for a $600 flamethrower. “Prototype pictured above,” the listing reads. “Final production flamethrower will be better.”
D.A. Wallach, (remember Chester French?) recently paid a visit to The Boring Company’s test tunnel at SpaceX HQ and posted a video with a working version of this supposed prototype flamethrower on his Instagram.
There's still no official release date for the fiery gadget as of now, but if you trust Elon, it's "coming soon." Stay tuned here as more information on the flamethrower rolls out in the coming weeks or months.
In the meantime, here's everything you need to know about the SpaceX Falcon Rocket.
