Tesla’s Automatic Charger Prototype is Kind of Creepy, Mostly Amazing

The robots—they’re learning. Don’t worry, though, you won’t have to call Will Smith to stop Tesla’s new automatic charger prototype. Continually pushing the boundaries of what’s possible, Tesla has created a robotic snake charger that should put your jaws firmly on the floor. There aren’t a lot of details on it yet—the video you’ll see below comes from Tesla’s twitter account (ironically the same day as some hacking news). But from what we can gather, this is still a prototype, and it finds its way automatically to the Model S’ charging dock. Simply drive in your garage and let the robot snake do all the work.
