Tesla reveals robotic snake car charger

An electric car charger that can find its own way into a vehicle has been unveiled by Tesla Motors.

The company's chief Elon Musk hinted at the device in December, describing it on Twitter as a "solid metal snake".

After the firm revealed a video of the charger in action he joked that it "does seem kinda wrong".

At the moment the gadget is just a prototype and the company has no plans to sell it in the near future.
