Luminoth Sentry Pod
Luminoth Sentry Pods are monitor units that collect and transmit security data to their Luminoth creators. They are armed with magnetic defense field technologies, which allows Samus to attach herself to them using her Spider Ball. They have a spherical design and are equipped with anti-gravity thrusters, which allow them to remain airborne wherever they're stationed. Samus can jettison herself from their surface using the Boost Ball in conjunction with circular, round pads placed strategically on the orbs, giving her access to other Sentry Pods and magnetic surfaces.
