Kino

A Kino is a ficitional used in tv series Stargate Universe and web series Kino where the device is used extensively in the narrative.

A Kino, named by Eli Wallace after the Russian "Kino-Pravda" meaning "film truth", is a sleek, softball-sized, self-levitating orb designed and built in mass quantities by the Ancients for use on the starship Destiny. Kinos contain a vast variety of sensors, able to scan atmospheric makeup and record audio and visual input. The device's movement can be controlled by the user, using either remotes or control consoles on the ship, but it is also capable of self-guidance.
