Tesla Motors Invents Robot Snake

Tesla Motors shows off a robot that charges a Model S automatically. Does the robot has to be looking like a creepy snake?

Elon Musk's Tesla Motors showed off a new invention in a video. A robot automatically charges a Model S. The Tesla engineers came up with a design that looks like a giant snake. The head of the robot snake seeks the plug on the Model S. Once found it stings the Model S and fills it up with that clean energy it runs on.

The movements of the robot are kind of creepy though. Imagine a garage at night. A shadow falls on the wall of a snake moving around. There will be screams, lots of screams. The question is how to make this robot less creepy. Tesla could have just used an off the shelf robot arm to do what this snake arm is doing.

Why does this automatic charger has to have an organic design? The need for a robot to put in a plug is also questionable. Tim Cook said "sitting is the new cancer." Getting out of the car and plug in that cable is good for health.

We are more excited about the new Model X. The electric SUV with the cross-wing doors will go on sale finally next month.
