Watching Robots Stuck Doing Repetitive Tasks Can Be Stressful

When robots are stuck performing repetitive tasks the part of our mind that anthropomorphizes objects starts to feel sorry for them, but bots don't know any better so your pity is wasted on them.

Still, it can be a bit stressful to watch helpless robots do mind-numbingly repetitive tasks typically done by humans, especially when you know the cycle won't end until their motors give out.

This 3D animated short by Michael Marczewski makes you think about life, work, and whether it would be all that bad if robots did all those boring jobs for us, because they can be rebuilt.
