The RIC-series was a reliable, yet unsophisticated, labor automaton, roughly humanoid in shape, and propelled by a pair of disc-mounted treads. The design remained unchanged for centuries. RIC droids possessed limited artificial intelligence, with only rudimentary programming to carry out their tasks.
RIC droids found fame as nuna-ball players during the leadup to the Clone Wars; the Serv-O-Droid team beat AccuTronics' B1 team in a Nuna-Ball League game on Commenor. The agility, speed and endurance of the RIC droid team proved effective against the stronger B1 side. These games were popular among the patrons of several Coruscant nightclubs, including the Outlander.
