FUTURE READY: ARE TECH LEADERS RUNNING OUT OF IDEAS?
A Flame Thrower? Seriously? This too from one of the smartest people around. This is not a toy but a weapon that can seriously harm and inflict injury if not used properly. The flame limit is 10 meters and that already says a lot.
Elon Musk is also making it sound like a joke but the product has been sold out plus an exorbitantly expensive “Fire Extinguisher” according to him for 15$ a pop. 20,000 Flame Throwers Sold for 500$ a piece raises an okay amount of money and this after selling 700,000$ of BORING COMPANY CAPS.
All this is being done to finance the BORING COMPANY (https://www.boringcompany.com/), yes, the boring company that is being established to BORE TUNNELS for Rapid Underground Transportation. Are things getting a bit awkward here isn’t it? Whats next to finance projects, Rocket Launchers?
We should be seeing an influx of “Counterfeit and Dangerous” Flamethrowers coming into the market soon; There should be an ethical standard imposed on the Do’s and Dont’s of business and how far the security of individuals should be regarded while bringing forth products to the market.
