Elon wasn't kidding: Tesla Motors on Twitter:
Well.... it looks snake-like... Wonder how it would fit into my garage?
Perfect for future superchargers when it is raining out :biggrin:
Couple this with AutoPark and Unattended SuperCharging congestion disappears!
It's Doctor Monopus. :scared::wink::smile:
Well maybe some would want it.
Looks like I'm going to have to retrofit the automatic closing charge door. Can it be done?
Can I get custom skins for it?
With led arrays?
A smoke machine for the base?
Very cool. If they can get it reliable, I can see this and autopilot managing a garage of Teslas
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:
I think I know who is working on this. The following video is a lecture at Stanford Unv by Senior Mechanical Engineer Dave Duff from Tesla, recorded in Nov 2012. In the video at 18:00 he shows small robot modules that attach to each other to perform tasks. Watch from 18:00 to 18:28 Stanford Seminar - Dave Duff, Telsa Motors - YouTube
Another reason to have thinner Supercharger cables.
This is so freaking awesome!! How much to install this at home?
Maybe in the future, your Tesla could back itself out of your garage, drive autonomosly down to the nearest Supercharger, fill itself up, and return to your home...all while you sleep.
So would Tesla send the "stop abusing the supercharger" letter to you, or your car?
Tesla charging snake
I am not making this up -
Tesla Motors on Twitter:
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.
Looks like something appropriate for the superchargers. A little bit of overkill for my garage.
