Elon Musk has a knack for selling bizarre gadgets that have little to do with Tesla’s main business, as he demonstrated with the Flamethrower. The latest example is a $50 “Cyberwhistle,” a collectible whistle in the shape of Tesla’s Cybertruck and cyberquad which already sold out.
“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,” the description states.
A whistle designed like a truck must take a bit of time to design, so it’s likely Tesla has planned to offer it as a temporary product for awhile – much like its $1,500 surfboard. Musk thought the $19 Apple Cloth made for a solid marketing angle, though. “Don’t spend money on that silly Apple Cloth, buy our whistle instead,” he tweeted.
As the Cyberwhistle sold out just hours after going on sale, it appears to have worked. According to the Tesla store description, it appears that Tesla will restock it at some point. As for the Cybertruck itself, Tesla reportedly has more than a million reservations for the Cybertruck, but its release date was quietly delayed to 2022.
