Tesla just revealed a crazy charger that springs out of the wall and automatically connects to your car - Business Insider

I guess this is their lab where they purchase every available commercial charger to make sure there aren't any problems:

Perfect for 3 things.

1) Self Driving Cars
2) Automatically "ejecting" the charging cable once the vehicle is fully charged.
3) Notifying an owner that their vehicle is fully charged, and reminding them to either "summon it" or pick it up. Also, Tesla could impose a fee for people who forget or choose to park their Tesla for more than 1-2 hours.
