Are you in the market for a flamethrower?
Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk has introduced a "Not a Flamethrower" device that is yes, basically a flamethrower. The flamethrower gun was available to a select group of buyers for $500, and dozens of people gathered in Los Angeles on Saturday to get their "Not a Flamethrower" at Musk's party. The device, which is recommended for finishing crème brûlée, has since popped up on eBay.
Musk shared some warnings and advice about using the device safely on Twitter:
