RIL (ROLLET INTERNATIONAL LIMITED)
Robot

It's a very uncommon french system. It's a very complete AY-3-8500 based sytem: 7 selectors and 2 buttons ! This system inludes a Robot option that allows the player to play against the system and to set its "intelligence". It's very odd looking, I mean, not a clone from another system but an original shape. Each paddle is detachable.

Now, the funiest part: Inside the system is a mother board with SOE OC5000 written on it ! Well, the OC-5000 is a French pong produced by a French company (Société Occitane d'électronique). So, Fil just bought the internal components from SOE and included them inside their case.

One other strange feature: The OC5000 has a 9V battery plug but this one has only a plug for a 9v external PSU. When you look into the system, you can still see the 9V battery wire wich is simply tied up !

As for being SOE OC5000 motherboard repackaged in different case - please note how the $ion switches, ROBOT dial and buttons, together with the external light-gun din plug share identical layout.

I actually have one of these, and it still works. I modified it so I could use the battery with it. This is a very hackable pong, you can make gameplay changes with hardware mods.
