We’ve seen a lot of interesting Star Wars mashups in our time, but this new one – in anticipation of the upcoming film, The Last Jedi – is simultaneously one of the strangest and coolest we’ve ever come across. We’re talking, of course, about the Samsung X Star Wars POWERbot VR7000 robot vacuum.
Like Roombas from a galaxy far, far away, these limited edition droids were built to keep your floors clean without making you push around a big unwieldy vacuum. Each, which come with your choice of a Stormtrooper or Darth Vader-esque visage, has 10 watts of suction power capacity, CycloneForce technology, the ability to clean even in the corners, and autonomous home mapping – making them some of the most high-tech vacuums around. But the Vader one has an added bonus: it comes with remote-control Bluetooth connectivity and an onboard speaker system that can pump out sounds of the Sith Lord’s iconic breathing. Preorders have opened up with a starting price of $699.
