The Armatron, another Radio Shack distributed wonder of mankind, was a little robot that could grip things and move them from one side of the table to another. It had two little joysticks and a crane armature. It would come with little objects that were supposed to be moved from location to location within a given time frame. Time was measured by an energy level indicator, which was essentially a timer. Wow. All sarcasm aside, at the time, this was an awesome toy, and a huge envy for those of us who couldn't afford one. Like us.
