10 — The Cyberquad
One of a number of mini-vehicles, designed and built for children, these battery powered ATV-toys are designed to mimic the original car products.
The all-electric Cyberquad for kids was inspired by the Cybertruck design, features a full steel frame, cushioned seat and adjustable suspension and rear disk braking.
Powered by a lithium-ion battery with up to 15 miles of range, this quad can go up to 10mph, is suitable for children from 8–12 years old and even has its own LED light bars.
Currently out of stock on the website at the time of writing, the sale price was listed as $1,900 and the quad comes with parental safety speed control.
Good news for adults too, the larger version of the Cyberquad is planed to go into production in 2023, albeit after the production of the Cybertruck.
Tesla have revealed that the ATV can charge in the bed of the Tesla Cybertruck from its 120 or 240 volt charging system.
9 — Not-A-Flame-Thrower
One of the more famous product launches from Musk’s Boring Company, the Not-A-Flame-Thrower was actually 100% a custom-made, company-branded working flamethrower.
Having to deny on Twitter that he was secretly creating a zombie apocalypse to generate demand for flamethrowers,, Musk and the company managed to sell roughly 20,000 of the devices at $500 each.
After making about $10 million in revenue in over 100 hours, the company went on to raise $112.5 million in equity.
The not a flamethrower name comes from the fact that the shipping company could not ship a product named “Flamethrower” and thus Musk came up with the genius name.
Now selling on eBay for upwards of $4,998 each, the product comes with a disclaimer stating that the company is not responsible for loss or damage to the product and does not condone its use anywhere.
8 — Burnt Hair Perfume
Released recently, this cologne, in a red bottle has also been released by Elon Musk on the Boring Company’s website and has been nicknamed “The Essence of Repugnant Desire”.
Within hours of the perfume’s release, Musk says the company has sold over 10,000 bottles of the branded fragrance and at $100 dollars a bottle, thats a cool $1 million dollars.
The next day, Musk says the company had sold another 10–20,000 bottles, making it one of the most successful lucrative merchandise launches of all time.
Musk touts “Burnt Hair” as “just like leaning over a candle at the dinner table, but without all the hard work” on the company’s website and also says it will help you “Stand out in a crowd and get noticed as you walk through the airport.”
Musk has said that with a name like his, it was only a matter of time before he entered the fragrance business and says the profits from sales will help him buy social media giant Twitter where he has now changed his handle to “perfume salesman”.
7 — Tesla Shorts
Wearable merchandise had officially been added to the Tesla website years ago, however nothing quite like the bright red Tesla Shorts and Short Shorts.
Another product that started as a Joke by Elon, the internet once again went crazy for the wearable items that are branded with the slogan “S3XY”
Launched by Musk to tease members of the public who were short-selling Tesla stock, and said that people could “run like the wind or entertain like Liberace” and cost $69.42.
After the shorts immediately sold out a, Musk stated that they had actually broke the Tesla website, such was the demand.
Back in 2018, Musk sent a box of short shorts to David Einhorn, a famous hedge fund manager who has a big short position on Tesla.
6 — Tesla Surf Board
Thought to have sold out in only 5 minutes, this 200-limited edition surf-board, in red with the tesla logo and black fins.
Conceived by Tesla Design Studio’s and Matt “Mayhem” Biolos, the boards were created by Lost Surfboards, a company that handcrafts boards in San Clemente, California.
Using the same high-quality matte and gloss finishes used on Tesla cars, the boards had a deck reinforced with lightweight ‘Black Dart’ carbon fiber.
Originally costing $1,500 each, the company stated that the fins were not included and several online users stated that a black bottom would cause problems with the sun.
Today the boards no longer appear on the company’s website, and after a quick check of eBay, it would seem that the price for one of these is now between $7,200 and $75,000 dollars.
5 — Cyber Whistle
Inspired by Cybertruck, the limited-edition Cyberwhistle is a premium collectible made from medical-grade stainless steel with a polished finish.
The whistle includes an integrated attachment feature for added versatility and was designed to imitate the whistle of an electric vehicle as it moves and comes in its own box.
One of the conditions of purchasing a cyber whistle was that the buyer must pay in cryptocurrency, specifically 1,000 DogeCoin, one of Elon Musk’s favorite crypto’s.
The whistle can also be found on eBay and is currently selling for around $70 but is, at the time of writing, currently sold out on Tesla’s website.
Musk has made comments on his twitter suggesting the Cyber Whistle may be linked to former Tesla employees turned whistle-blowers.
4 — The Boring Candy
They say that the way to a woman’s heart is chocolate, but what about candy?… from The Boring Company, yes thats right, Elon Musk created his very own Candy Company from know where.
Starting out as a joke on twitter, his vision for starting a candy company actually came true and he created Boring Candy.
While this product is now definitely no longer for sale, its actually un-clear if it ever went on sale?
Leave a comment below and let us know!
3 — Tesla Tequila
While drinking and driving is forbidden world-wide, this April fools joke actually became a reality after Elon Musk posted the original idea on twitter.
Originally called “Teslaquila”, that name was unavailable due to tequila industry regulations as the name may cause confusion or misunderstanding.
Coming in the shape of a lightning bolt, Tesla Tequila is registered both in Mexico and the United States and is currently produced in Mexico.
Designed like the shape of Tesla’s charging stations on GPS maps, it has been claimed the glass bottles were impossible to mass produce and so came in limited edition form.
Initially launched at $250 per bottle, the brand sold out in just one day and its reported that empty bottles of the brand were selling on eBay for up to $1,300 dollars.
2 — Desktop Supercharger
For owners of the famous cars, Tesla Superchargers are a must have when charging up at the roadside, but what if you could use one to charge your phone in your office?
Behold the workspace desktop Supercharger, portable battery that has been officially commissioned by Tesla and has the same 3D CAD data used to manufacture the actual Supercharger.
Used to precisely replicate every detail, curve and surface found in the real thing, this 3D printed scale model can charge any phone and replicates the Supercharging experience in a miniature form.
Desktop Superchargers can be purchased directly from the Tesla store and currently cost $45 each although the USB charging cable is not currently included.
Currently able to charge micro-USB, USB-C, and Lightning cable devices, installing this on your desk will be almost as fun as taking your car to a charger in real life.
1 — Boring Company Hats
Tunneling beneath roads to one day alleviate traffic congestion, the boring company has been at the heart of Elon Musk’s vision to help people move about more easily.
One way to fundraise money for this venture was to sell a variety of merchandise including these 50,000 limited edition hats.
Sold for $20 each, the hats bought in around $1 million dollars for the company, with some of the hats re-appearing on ebay for up to $500 dollars.
One hat, that the seller claimed had been signed by musk, was listed for close to $10,000 dollars.
When Elon Musk first released The Boring Company caps, he posted a photo of one on Instagram with the caption, “best hat ever”.
It would appear that Elon Musk could sell just about anything on the internet and people would buy it…. genius!
