Elon Musk took to Twitter to announce The Boring Company the latest version of the product, life-size Lego-like interlocking bricks that can be used for making sculptures and buildings.

It could be called The Boring Company, but Elon Musk, the infrastructure plans and unique products are anything but “boring.” The tunnel-construction company-founder has just introduced new merchandise: life-size LEGO-like interlocking bricks used for the construction of pictures and buildings.

The bricks are made of sturdy material such as tunneling, rock, Musk said.

“Specified for California seismic loads, so super strong, but get bored in the middle, like an airplane wing, so not heavy,” Musk explained in an early Monday tweet that has already been shared by nearly 5,000 people.

THE SPACEX FALCON HEAVY ROCKET, AND OTHER ELON MUSK PROJECTS ON THE WAY

Musk said the first set follows an ancient Egypt theme: “pyramids of giza, the Sphinx, the temple of Horus, etc.”

The Fans were quick to their excitement about the latest project, though some were still fixated on the popular the company, which ships in the spring.

Earlier this year, The Boring Company sold 20,000 flamethrowers — for $ 500 a piece-in just a few days. According to the website of the company, the product is the “world’s safest” and “guaranteed to liven up any party.”

Flamethrower lovers frantically searched online for any leftovers, some discovered flamethrowers on eBay sold for a whopping $25,000.

“How long for flamethrower deliveries?” an enthusiastic Twitter user asked Musk in response to his announcement about the new LEGO-style instruments.

“Prob Can,” Musk said.

“Insensitive to my soon-to-come ‘not a lot’?” another asked.

“Guaranteed Flamethrower-proof!” Musk responded.

HOW THE SPACEX FALCON HEAVY ROCKET COMPARES WITH ELON MUSK THE OTHER MIGHTY SPACESHIP

While the flamethrowers are sold as “big boys toys,” the LEGO-like bricks are designed for speed and efficiency.

“Hey @elonmusk other way to do this is to turn it into affordable housing, etc. in the areas of future drilling locations? Little to no transport costs, as contractors come out of the drill sites to pick up material by the pound,” a Twitter user suggested.

Musk said that he believes that the boring stone, who will grab it “with a precise finish from the surface,” will be so easy to handle that two people can build on the outside of the walls of a small house “in a day or so.” People were shocked to hear Musk’s prediction.

Yes, the boring stones are interlocking with a precise finish from the surface, so that two people can build on the outside of the walls of a small house in a day or so

“Wow. Is it biodegradable? What is the impact factor on the environment?” a man asked.

“Uhh, it’s literally made of stone,” Musk said.

Musk said that he plans to ship the product worldwide, once it is developed. He said in his first tweet that the stones will be “soon.”
