The billionaire tech tycoon promised a fire-spewing weapon from his deceptively-titled The Boring Company—Musk's infrastructure and tunnel construction firm—would arrive following the sellout of much dorkier branded hats in December.
The password has since been changed, but screengrabs indicate that the fiery $600 gadget is available for preorder.
The listing reads, "Prototype pictured above. Final production flamethrower will be better.”
Is this too good—or ridiculous—to be true? Popular Mechanics doesn't think so.
There's nothing to prevent Musk from selling his flamethrowers the way other companies already are: by simply avoiding sending them to areas where they are regulated.
Hmmm, good to know. Between being the inspiration for Iron Man's Tony Stark, dating Amber Heard and launching giant rockets into space, Musk didn't even need to start selling flamethrowers to be a total badass. But it certainly doesn't hurt.
