About the Design
Seen briefly in the opening sequences of the original "Star Wars," this is the pod in which droids R2-D2 and C-3PO escaped from Princess Leia's Rebel Blockade Runner, only to find themselves marooned on the desert planet of Tatooine.
Such pods are generally launched via explosive bolts to allow them to function even in the event of a complete power-loss. Controls are usually automated for maximum ease of use.
