Tesla Motors claims to be building a snakelike robot that is capable of plugging in your electric vehicle in for you.

Tesla has released a video on its YouTube channel that shows a snakelike robot approaching charging port of Tesla's Model S electric car.

The robot appears to connect with the charging port without any human assistance.

Tesla's CEO, Elon Musk, tweeted that Tesla is working on a "charger that automatically moves out from the wall [and] connects like a solid metal snake."
