ELON MUSK: Tesla Is Building A Wild Car Charger That Springs Out Of The Wall And Automatically Connects To Your Car Like A 'Solid Metal Snake'

Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk says his company is working on a wild idea for its car chargers: Instead of needing to connect the car manually, the charger would automatically come out of the wall and connect to the car like “a solid metal snake.”¬†

Perhaps it will look like Titanoboa, the 50-foot mechanical snake built by the Vancouver arts collective EatArt, pictured here:

This futuristic car charger could work with Tesla’s current line of Model S sedans, but it’s more likely to work with future vehicles. We’ve reached out to the company and we’ll update this story when we learn more.

Other outlandish ideas from Musk and his various engineering teams at Tesla Motors and SpaceX: An interactive “Iron Man”-like computer interface that can be controlled with your hands, and the Hyperloop, a revolutionary transit system that could theoretically travel from New York to San Francisco in under two hours.
