Tesla's Robotic Charger Is A Little Bit Sexy

Tesla Motors has a prototype charger for its all-electric Model S that senses a nearby car and guides its high-voltage connector to the car's rear-mounted port, all without any human interaction. And it looks... sensual.

Elon Musk's tweet at the start of the year told us that the American electric car company was working on an autonomous robotic charger, a solid metal snake, that would find its way to the charging port of a Model S (or, presumably, the new larger Model X) from some distance away. Now, in a quick YouTube video, a prototype of that charger has been shown in action.

This is one step towards proper real-life Transformers, guys. [Tesla Motors]
