The Extravehicular Activity (EVA) Pod was a suit of powered armor designed to let the wearer make repairs to starships in a vacuum. It had a low-level droid brain that assisted an inexperienced wearer in its operation. It handled the complicated tasks like maneuvering and monitoring life support so the wearer could concentrate on their task at hand.
It had a fully-sealed life support system with a duration of two hours. It also had an external bay for storage and a full set of engineering tools built into the motorized arms.
