Tesla’s Solid Metal Snake Will Have Sex with Your Car to Charge It

On the last day of last year, Elon Musk tweeted this:

For realz y’all. Now, just 8 months later, Tesla Motors tweets this:

Totes realz. Tesla looks like it will indeed deliver an automated snake charger that Teslas will charge with once you park your car in the garage. It’s a fascinating and undeniably cool concept that just also happens to look totally like robot sex in real life. So, watch it plug in over and over again? Awww yeah.

I feel like this is NSFWIYAAR (not suitable for work if you are a robot), but I can’t look away.

Creepiness aside, the tech on display here is impressive. Both the snake and the car have to first know that they are in range of each other, the car has to open its charging port, and then the snake has to utilize some kind of three dimensional data and dozens of motors to carefully articulate itself into the port.

See? That doesn’t sound so NSFWIYAAR…right?
