    The owner of the YouTube channel "So I Had This Idea" has recreated the 'safe' flamethrower presented by Elon Musk in early 2018, using some creativity and patience.

    Were you one of the 20,000 people who ordered a Boring Company flamethrower for $500 ($700 including delivery) after the man behind Tesla and SpaceX introduced the product on social media?

    Well, this tinkerer decided to take a different approach and made one on his own.  A STAR XR-5 1508 Airsoft Gun, a bottle mount, a propane extension hose, a propane cylinder and a blow torch were required to bring the replica to life.
