Alright, so number two in our Rate the Robots series has us taking a look at a seemingly insignificant member of robot lore...
Robot: Training remote, as seen in Star Wars Episode IV,
Overview: The training remote was a simple type of training droid most often employed as a means of schooling whiney hillbillies in the Jedi arts.
Pros: Now we're talking! Quick, unpredictable, and unpretentious. This little doohickey had a job to do and it did it.
Cons: Little electric jolts fired from the training-remote eyes will slap your ass worse than a locker room towel, blast shields be damned.
Reality Check: The training remote jumps about with no obvious signs of how, exactly, it's jumping about. It's the future, baby!
Rating: 6 out of 10. Sometimes less is more.
