Using bitcoin to buy this flame-throwing robot dog saves you 10%

Bitcoin holders in the market for a terrifying fire-spewing robot dog can now get 10% off if they make their purchase using the world’s most popular crypto.

The four-legged flamethrower — official name ‘Thermonator’ — is currently priced at $9,420 but, according to its seller Throwflame, buyers can knock off $942 if they use bitcoin to make the purchase.

If that wasn’t a sweet enough deal, Thermonator comes with free US shipping and a further discount if bought in bulk as a ‘wolf pack.’

To create the four-legged death-dealer, Throwflame has taken a Unitree robotic dog and strapped to it one of its own ARC flamethrowers. In addition to the flame unit, which boasts a range of 30ft (9m), Thermonator comes bundled with obstacle avoidance, an HD camera, one hour of battery life, and a laser pointer. It can also be remotely controlled using a mobile app.

Throwflame claims, “Thermonator is the first-ever flamethrowing quadruped robot dog.”

Throwflame also offers government agencies, including the army, navy, and air force, the opportunity to purchase Thermometer through a government portal. 

New York’s Police Department has previously utilized robot dogs created by Boston Dynamics as a means of surveillance during dangerous operations. These models were capable of patrolling alongside the police without requiring someone to control them.

Update April 26, 08:53 UTC: Clarified the Thermonator dog is based on a model of robot created by Unitree, and not Boston Dynamics.
