Watching Robots Stuck in Repetitive, Mundane Tasks Is Stressing Me Out

By Andrew Liszewski on at

If you’re living under the assumption that your job could never be filled by a robot, think again. Your day-to-day routine might not seem as monotonous as the tasks that factory line robots perform, but as Michael Marczewski’s stressful short film Vicious Cycle asks, is it really?

Even activities like chopping wood or playing baseball are boiled down to their boring, monotonous essence in this animated film. But as the robots get driven harder and faster and eventually break down, we at least have the peace of mind knowing that one day the very same thing will happen to us. [Vimeo via Laughing Squid]
