Tesla Developing ‘Metal Snake’ Charger
Ryan Simmons / 3 years ago
Tesla is working on a charger for its cars that you don’t even have to plug in, because it’ll do it all by itself. “For realz” (the words of Elon Musk, not mine).
Btw, we are actually working on a charger that automatically moves out from the wall & connects like a solid metal snake. For realz.

It’s not yet clear how this would work, but a company called OC Robotics might just be developing the technology Tesla is looking to use. As you can see bellow, this video posted to their YouTube account (via Mail Online) shows such as system in use. A metallic tube curves and bends its way around very much like a real snake.
