Tesla Cyberwhistle

For $50, you get a Tesla Cyberwhistle and classy box.


Tesla CEO Elon Musk on Tuesday urged his 65.1 million Twitter followers to buy a $50 Cyberwhistle inspired by the shape of his company's upcoming electric Cybertruck. As of early Wednesday, the Cyberwhistle is out of stock.

"Blow the whistle on Tesla!" he wrote with a link to the product, in a possible jab at would-be whistleblowers. 

He also made fun of Apple's $19 polishing cloth, saying people should buy Tesla's whistle instead. 

"Inspired by Cybertruck, the limited-edition Cyberwhistle is a premium collectible made from medical-grade stainless steel with a polished finish," the product description reads. "The whistle includes an integrated attachment feature for added versatility."

It's unclear what the attachment feature is from the photos, but there might be a hole or clip on the back that lets you hang it off your clothes.

Tesla created major excitement in 2019 when it unveiled the Cybertruck, an angular electric pickup truck that looked straight out of Blade Runner. It's coming closer to entering production, with Musk confirming over the summer that it'll be built in Austin, Texas.

The Cyberwhistle isn't the first product inspired by Tesla's vehicle; Mattel released a $100 RC Cybertruck earlier this year.
