A Mustafar Panning Droid .
The Mustafar panning droid, also known as the droid lava , was a fifth-degree droid modified by the Techno Union from the Kalibac Industries information cataloging droid. These so-called panning droids operated on Mustafar, mining minerals from the planet's lava rivers.
Following the culmination of the Clone Wars, several panning droids bore witness to the duel between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker. One droid, currently devoid of any particular task, set its photoreceptors on the duel as it progressed across precarious terrain, while another became more personally involved. Escaping from a fallen lava collection arm tumbling over a lavafall, Anakin leapt onto the carbonite head of a panning droid in order to pursue Kenobi. Anakin used the Force to override the droid's steering controls, distressing the unit enough to cause it to drop its collection bucket into the lava below.
During the reign of the Galactic Empire, panning droids saw continued service on Mustafar, particularly as part of a reclamation project helmed by the Tagge Company. (source: starwars.wikia)
