In an attempt to raise money once again, entrepreneur Elon Musk has launched another merchandise from his whimsically named construction firm The Boring Company which is planning to build a futuristic underground transportation system.

On Sunday, in a tweet, he announced that The Boring Company will launch Lego-like bricks which are made from excavated tunnelling rock.

“New Boring Company merch(andise) coming soon. Lifesize LEGO-like interlocking bricks made from tunnelling rock that you can use to create sculptures & buildings. Rated for California seismic loads, so super strong, but bored in the middle, like an aircraft wing spar, so not heavy,” Musk tweeted.

“First kit set will be ancient Egypt — pyramids, Sphinx, temple of Horus, etc.,” he added in another tweet.

In a reply to the question that if it could be turned into affordable housing in the areas of future drilling locations with little to no transportation costs if contractors come to the drill sites to pick up material by the pound? He explained that “the boring bricks are interlocking with a precise surface finish” and hence can be used to build outer walls of a small house in a day or so.

Since the brick would be made up of excavated rocks, it would have hardly any impact on the environment. Musk also said that the company would ship the bricks to any corner in the world.

Before this, Musk has already sold 50,000 baseball caps and 20,000 flamethrowers by which he has already raised over USD 11 million.

Musk in a reply said that the bricks are going to be flamethrower proof.
