Elon Musk gave us proper notice about the "solid metal snake" that would be able to emerge from your garage wall and automatically connect with any Tesla vehicle - past, present, and future - to charge it. We now have a visual on the technology thanks to a short video posted by the Model S manufacturer, and it is... mesmerizing.

Its mechanicals are familiar, but the way it moves has encouraged all sorts of reactions from "freaky" to "creepy" to "terrifying" to "sensual" and drawn comparison to a surgical snakebot. Even Musk tweeted "does seem kinda wrong." But it's actually very right. While we wait for inductive charging technology to catch up to the capacity-vs-time equation provided by solid connections, having a wall- or ceiling-mounted droid in your garage that can attend to the dirty bits of electric car ownership is all right by us.
