Elon Musk says he’s building a cyborg dragon, and we have every reason to believe him.
What that means exactly remains a mystery, but when Musk says something on Twitter—even if it borders the line of believability—it shouldn’t be taken lightly.
Oh btw I’m building a cyborg dragon— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) April 25, 2018
The CEO and founder of Tesla and SpaceX took to his platform of choice on Thursday, tweeting: “Oh btw I’m building a cyborg dragon.” He made one additional comment about the mysterious plan: “I know … such an underserved market” in response to someone who matter-of-factly commented, “about fucking time.”
We can only speculate as to what this cyborg dragon might be. The going theory is that Musk is building a Game of Thrones-inspired killer robot.

Others connected Musk’s vague tweeting with comments made by Kanye West.
Musk’s latest tweet more likely has to do with SpaceX’s reusable Dragon capsule. The Dragon was built in 2012 and became the first commercial spacecraft to bring cargo to the International Space Station and return to Earth. A spokesperson at SpaceX declined to comment.
We also know Musk has a new startup called Neuralink that is developing an implantable brain-to-machine interface. Perhaps he found a way to combine the two? A more conservative theory is that Musk is planting another Easter egg into his Tesla cars.
Whatever the case, the intrigue surrounding his tweet already ranks up there with his bizarre announcement about selling The Boring Company-branded flamethrowers. If Musk is actually building a cyborg dragon, we’ll be wishing we’d bought one.
