Tesla Motors today revealed a short video showing off what could be its charger of the future: a solid metal "snakebot" that can automatically plug itself into the electric Model S. The clip shows the unsettling prototype charger tentatively slithering into position, before it plugs itself in to begin the charging process. Tesla founder Elon Musk teased the technology back in December, promising on Twitter that it was "for realz." We now have the definitive -- and incredibly creepy -- evidence. Check out the video below.
