Prehensile Robot Snake Will Sniff Out And Charge Your Tesla Car

Pleasingly creepy

Earlier this year, supervillainous Elon Musk warned us that the next model of Tesla electric car charger would come in the form of a blind, probing serpent with an electric proboscis. Now a prototype of the snake charger has been revealed via video, and it’s all we dreamed of.

With the new system installed, just pull into your garage and park. The articulated, spine-like charger will waken, waggle, and languorously extend itself toward your Tesla Model S’s glowing energy orifice, then slide in and charge up the car’s battery.

As the electric snakes inevitably rear up, entwine us in their sinister coils, and take over, at least we humans will never again have to stoop to plug in a cord.
