Buyers travel thousands of miles to pick up first batch of Elon Musk's flamethrowersThe first batch of flamethrowers sold by Elon Musk’s tunnel construction business The Boring Company have been handed out to customers – with some people traveling thousands of miles to pick one up. The Tesla entrepreneur had suggested the idea of selling a flamethrower at the end of 2017, with the project aiming to raise $10m for The Boring Company, which was founded with the intention of building a network of tunnels to help reduce traffic congestion across the US. Mr Musk claimed that the company had sold 20,000 of the $500 in four days in during January this year, with the first flamethrowers handed out at Boring’s Hawthorne, California offices over the weekend.
