Repulsorpods,[4] also known as hoverpods,[5] viewing platforms,[6] or simply pods,[3] were used by members of the Galactic and Imperial Senates during debates in the Senate Building chamber.[6] After the founding of the New Republic, the use of repulsorpods in the Senate was considered "overly hierarchical", and thus the pods were reserved for ceremonial functions.[3] They were equipped with repulsors, enabling them to hover towards the center of the auditorium while speaking to the Senate,[2] or rise above to ground to address a crowd.[3]

During his duel with Yoda, Emperor Palpatine hurled multiple platforms at the Jedi Grand Master with the Force.[2]
