|“|| Orbis Labs look toward the future with guarded optimism. While we hope for an end to conflict and peace throughout the world and universe, history has taught us that conflict will always be a reality.
Our team of world class scientists and technicians are developing the modular motion apparatus of the future: the Battle Sphere. With the fortitude of a tank, the mobility of infantry, and its unique superstructure allowing soldiers to morph into its shell, the Battle Sphere will dramatically enhance a soldier's defense profile to meet every combat situation.

The Battle Sphere is a tank-like rolling sphere, manned by a single pilot, that had turrets on either side. It was designed by Orbis Labs and is possibly a forerunner for the Chozo Morph Ball. It is intended to enable soldiers to maneuver rugged landscapes and small entry points with ease. The Battle Sphere would have replaced tanks, hovercrafts and single-person transportation vehicles if completed.
Samantha Manus found that if the Battle Sphere was to be completed, then the current male soldier is physically too large.
