With Star Wars mania picking up again with the upcoming release of The Last Jedi, Samsung has announced a self-piloting vacuum (I call them all Roombas), in the style of Darth Vader and Stormtroopers.
The Limited Edition POWERBot, works like any other auto-piloting vacuum and has countless sensors to detect furniture and walls. It even has an app that lets you control the droids and are compatible with Google Assistant and Alexa. But of course, being a limited edition Star Wars version you expect it to do something neat. Both models can play music from the iconic series, and will make sounds according to their model. So the Vader vacuum will breath like the Sith Lord.
It’s available for pre-order now and the Vader one is $799, while the stormtrooper is $699 as it doesn’t include wi-fi.
I’m more a movie poster on my wall kind of guy, but If you want to clean your house with a Vader vacuum, then grab a beer out of your carbonite Han Solo refrigerator and open it with your Lightsaber bottle opener after eating waffles made in your Death Star waffle iron, than hey, by all means, it’s your money.
