Tesla's Self-Actuating, Self-Plugging Snake Charger Is Terrifying

-We were warned this would happen. Back in December, Tesla Motors Tweeter-in-Chief Elon Musk revealed that his electric-car company was working on an automated charging plug.

Sure, at the time we laughed. “Solid metal snake?” we chortled. “For realz?” we guffawed. It turns out that the future is now, and it’s terrifying. Just witness this unsettlingly animated mecha-tentacle activate and find its way to the Model S’s charging port.

Now, to be fair, the company is still calling it a prototype, and there’s no word as to whether such a device could make it to production anytime soon. Which is probably a good thing—I mean, this robot is pure, 100-percent nightmare-inducing. Don’t let your kids watch this, they won’t sleep for days.



Frankly, neither will we.
