Boring Co to sell 'Lego-like' construction blocks

The company will sell its boring spoil as merch, starting with a kit set of ancient Egypt's "pyramids, Sphinx, temple of Horus, etc."

After selling millions of dollars in hats and flamethrowers, The Boring Company has outlined its next headline-grabbing merchandise line -- 'Lego-like' construction blocks.

Announcing the program on Twitter, Elon Musk said the company's boring spoil would be converted into interlocking bricks that can be used to create sculptures and buildings.

"Rated for California seismic loads, so super strong, but bored in the middle, like an aircraft wing spar, so not heavy," he explained.

The blocks will have a precise surface finish and are claimed to allow two people to build the outer walls of a small house "in a day or so," with global shipping.

The executive did not mention a price for the blocks, but he did promise the first kit set will replicate icons of ancient Egypt including the pyramids, Sphinx, and Temple of Horus.
