Tesla to open a restaurant? First, let’s take a look at the company’s other off-the-wall products

June 5 (Bloomberg) — As one of the world’s most innovative companies, most of Tesla’s ideas come from CEO Elon Musk, and some of Musk’s recent comments as host of “Saturday Night Live” have sparked growing controversy. And recently Tesla’s multiple safety issues around the world have caused investors and his former fans to question him, even though Tesla passed Toyota in mid-2020 to become the world’s most valuable car company.

But today we’re not talking about electric cars, we’re talking about the most controversial brand’s “off-the-grid business. As Bloomberg recently reported, the company’s current non-automotive business goals even include a possible foray into the restaurant business. Here’s a look at that possibility, as well as some of the non-car-related devices and gadgets Tesla makes.

While no one knows exactly what Tesla intends to do for now, several media outlets reported in early June that Tesla filed paperwork with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to use three of its logo designs for the food industry. Does this mean Musk is opening a restaurant? Maybe – the mogul wrote in a 2018 tweet that he “intends to open an old-fashioned drive-in theater, skates and rock ‘n’ roll restaurant near a new Tesla Supercharger station in Los Angeles.”

Radio Toys Tesla Model S

If you have a pre-teen Tesla fan in the family, you can give him a Mini Model S made by Radio Flyer. Designed for children ages 3-8 and about 80 pounds, these cars are completely battery-powered, just like their older siblings. Like real cars, they come equipped with high-tech features, including a front trunk, a working horn and headlights, and an MP3 sound system.

House-Powering Batteries

Tesla is not only a car company, but a battery company as well, and they make power cells that can produce enough energy to run your entire home. Known as the Powerwall, Tesla’s home battery is 100% self-powered and can store enough power to provide more than seven days of continuous energy in the event of a power outage. a 4,500 square foot home can be sustained by two powerwalls for a total cost of $13,000, but Tesla says hardware support will cost another $1,100 and installation will cost between between $2,000 and $3,000.

Solar Roof

Your Powerwall batteries need to get their energy from the sun. Forget the old-fashioned, big, bulky solar panels, Tesla solar roofs are made of invisible glass shingles that look like roof tiles – but they’re much more durable. Tesla is so confident in its product that the so-called “unlimited warranty” can be extended “to the life of your house, or unlimited, depending on which comes first.”

Co-branded surfboards

In 2018, Tesla invented a limited edition of 200 red and black surfboards that sold out quickly. The boards, made by Lost Surfboards and a guy named Matt “Mayhem” Biolos, have the same surface material as Tesla cars and are reinforced with carbon fiber.In 2019, experts from Surfer Today opened one of the boards to see what it was made of and concluded that, aside from the name Tesla ( Tesla), there is nothing special about this board.

Flamethrower

Elon Musk’s “Boring Company” got its name from the giant tunnel the company plans to build, not because it’s really boring – quite the opposite, actually. Although it’s not technically a Tesla, Boring produced a product that was so cool and so hot that it made the list. 20,000 $500 flamethrowers were released in limited quantities, raising $10 million and selling out in four days. They look a bit like a mix between a Star Wars assault rifle and a super water cannon, and while they do spew out a lot of awesome flames, they’re technically not flamethrowers – more like a giant butane torch. To avoid technical problems, Musk named his handheld flamethrower the “not-a-flamethrower”.

Isometric models

Tesla sells miniature die-cast model cars for the collector car enthusiast. The doors and trunk are open, the tires are made of rubber, the seat belts are made of fabric, and the interior is carpeted. The cars are available in different models, priced at $175 each, and consist of over 180 plastic and metal parts in total.

Desktop chargers

Tesla is known for its Superchargers, nearly 13,000 of which are located throughout the United States and can fully charge a Tesla in half an hour. In addition to this Tesla has created exact replica scale models that can be placed on your desk, perhaps right next to your miniature Tesla model. Not just for decoration, they are also used to charge cell phones. Whether they’re as fast as Superchargers or not, for $35 you can give them a try. (Midsummer)
