PR2 Safety Video Doesn’t Warn of Robot Uprisings

Here’s a safety video for Willow Garage’s PR2 that’s pretty interesting to watch.  I guess even roboticists need to be reminded of the potential dangers of their 400 lb lab mates now and then, especially since the proud new parents of the PR2 will likely be showing it off to untrained visitors.  They also repeatedly stress the dangers of allowing robots near their arch enemies: stairs.  In all seriousness though this is pretty important stuff and it’s good to see Willow Garage being proactive about it.
