Technically Incorrect offers a slightly twisted take on the tech that's taken over our lives.
Are you waiting anxiously for yours?
Perhaps you're one of the 20,000 people-- or, as it's called in some countries, " ."
Perhaps you currently dream about the object of your first inflammation, wondering if the $500 you paid to Elon Musk's company will be worth the spectacle.
It seems that one person took a different approach to getting one swiftly into his hands. He made it himself.
Under the handle "So I Had This Idea," this intrepid gadgeteeer found himself a STAR XR-5 1508 Airsoft Gun, a bottle mount, a propane extension hose, a propane cylinder and a blow torch.
Take a look what he did with them.
It was all about disassembly and modification.
It was all about reassembly and testing.
I imagine that it was about patience and desire, too.
Why, he even made sure to create a Boring Company logo so that his homemade flamethrower would look as authentic as possible.
Neither this mysterious gadgeteer nor the Boring Company immediately responded to a request for comment.
The video makes the creation seem simpler than I suspect it actually is. Then again, some have speculated that Musk's flamethrower is merely a blowtorch, as he himselfthat it won't emit flames more than 10 feet.
Here, the flamethrower appears to be perfectly functional, if your idea of perfection is to shoot flames out of a gun.
So look, you can apparently make a Boring Company flamethrower at home.
And I wouldn't suggest for even a moment that you should.
