Elon Musk’s ‘Not A Flamethrower’ Devices Show Up On eBay For Thousands

Elon Musk and the Boring Company Deliver its First 'Not a Flamethrower' Flamethrowers

Flame on! Elon Musk says Boring Company delivers its first ‘Not-a-Flamethrowers’

Prices range from just under $3,000 to one listing with a "Buy it Now" price of $20,000.

As of Sunday afternoon, a few eBay users had posted white flamethrower guns - which Musk has named "Not A Flamethrower".

Buyers did fun things on site afterward like using the flamethrower to toast marshmallows.

Tweeting from Hathorne, the Tesla and SpaceX chief executive added: "Due to recent regulatory/customs rules enacted to inhibit transport of anything called a Flamethrower, we have renamed our product: "Not-a-Flamethrower".

Musk tweeted what he claimed was the terms and conditions for the machines, some of which were presented in the style of the USA children's author Dr. Seuss.

The YouTuber Justine Ezarik unboxed the device in a video over the weekend, in which the tech reviewer Faruk Korkmaz commented: "Read the terms, they're not joking". These guys flame-roasted steaks.

The hot ticket items also come with a 10-page manual including other sensible tips such as not pointing the Not-A-Flamethrower at your face, people, animals, or flammable objects, and not to touch the nozzle during or after use.




Not all of the images depicted safe or controlled use of the machines, however.

Meanwhile, YouTube vlogger Justine Ezarik accidently burned down parts of her backyard while filming videos demonstrating how to cook with the machine.

And then there's this guy who appears to have lit up something else...

Some have criticised the sale of the "Not-a-Flamethrower" to the general public, viewing it as a major safety risk.

In an unsurprising, yet unfortunate turn of events, Musk was blocked from shipping the Boring Company Flamethrower in February when customs agencies point blank refused to deliver a device with such a volatile name.

With 20,000 flamethrowers soon to be in circulation, expect more flame-throwing displays on social media.
