Tesla’s new wall charger can automatically hook up to your vehicle

41 sec read

Plugging in your electric vehicle when you get home may be a minuscule inconvenience, but it’s an inconvenience nonetheless. That’s why Elon Musk is announcing that Tesla Motors is working on a charger that resembles a “solid metal snake” that automatically extends from the wall and plugs into your vehicle. While this may seem like overkill for such an insignificant problem, it’s definitely appreciated.

Elon Musk is pretty much the best thing about Twitter, and today is no exception – the Tesla CEO tweeted that his electric car company is actually working on tech that would allow chargers to snake out of the wall and plug into your car automatically, eliminating the need to manually connect when you get your Model S back to your garage at night. This would presumably somewhat resemble the kind of articulated robotic arms made famous by comic book villain Doctor Octopus, but less threatening and evil. The invention would appear to be driven by a desire to make the process of charging Tesla vehicles even more convenient, and also by extension more idiot-proof – you can’t forget to plug in your car when the plug is autonomous, after all.
