Tesla, which is already on the verge of bringing driverless cars to the market, unveiled another impressive technology late last week that had us fluctuating between awe and terror: a robotic snake that charges the Tesla Model S without any human assistance.
Yes, for realz, as Tesla CEO Elon Musk said in December of last year.
Btw, we are actually working on a charger that automatically moves out from the wall & connects like a solid metal snake. For realz.

Tesla has not yet announced when it would be released or at what cost, but with the company making a major push to put more cars on the road this than ever this quarter, we expect the snake to be unleashed on consumers in the near future.
