Samsung now has Darth Vader and Storm Trooper VacuumBots

  • These Star Wars POWERbot vacuums by Samsung are available for pre-order starting Oct. 10

Have you ever wished for Darth Vader to clean your living room? The Powerbot VR7000 vacuum cleaners features two new designs, a Darth Vader version featuring the villain's iconic mask; and a Stormtrooper edition which is a replica of the imperial troops' black and white helmet. So excited that you're...wishing your robot vacuum looked like Darth Vader? If you have, Samsung has launched just the thing for you.

You can control them via an app or with Alexa voice commands, but what sets these hoovers apart is their sound effects. There's no confirmed availability in the Middle East yet, but the Star Wars PowerBots are available to pre-order in the United States for US$799.

The Stormtrooper calls out "Let's go!" when it begins cleaning.

The Darth Vader model of this robot vacuum cleaner has Wi-Fi connectivity as well as its own remote control.

There's nothing new other than the cosmetic changes.

The VR7000 Star Wars limited edition promises all of the powerful cleaning technology and features of the original VR7000, such as suction power capacity of 10 watts, CycloneForce technology, and Edge Clean Master, which helps the unit clean close to walls and edges. It uses mapping tech to remember your home and discover the fastest cleaning routes.

Both versions are now available via pre-order and will begin shipping out on November 5.

In what is now my favorite Marvel Star Wars comic run, Darth Vader (2017) takes us deep into the depths of the Dark Side of the Force, showing no mercy in the process.
