Monday Morning Mini Movie: Death By Robot?

Here's a fun film about how to use the PR2 research robot safely:

This may seem an odd choice for a Monday Morning Mini Movie but I liked it for a couple of reasons:

  1. I think the clunky animations and effects are funny.
  2. It involves robots.
  3. People are more likely to watch the video than read a safety booklet.
  4. People are more likely to remember the safety advice after watching than reading.

Points 3 and 4 have been proven many times yet even when it comes to keeping clients or employees safe, most companies still go with the easily written, easily forgotten memo instead of an efective video or animation.  What about your company?
