Samsung Electronics has introduced a new Star Wars limited edition of the POWERbot robot vacuum cleaner, the VR7000. The vacuum with iconic Darth Vader and Stormtrooper designs is intended to captivate fans in anticipation of the December release of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” the final film in the Disney and Lucas Films saga.

The Darth Vader version of the POWERbot features a specially created cover using custom materials that resembles Darth Vader’s all-black mask while the Stormtrooper version replicates the look of a white and black Stormtrooper’s helmet. The Darth Vader model comes with Wi-Fi connectivity and its own remote control. Both models also offer fun and unique sound effects appropriate for each character. For example, when powering on the Darth Vader unit, the vacuum will play and mimic the character’s infamous breathing.

 

The VR7000 Star Wars limited edition promises all of the 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 can even work autonomously, using Visionary Mapping Plus to remember the room and find the fastest cleaning routes around the user’s home. FullView Sensor 2.0 allows the unit to clean around home decorations and valuable personal items as small as 10mm. With its unique smart features and powerful performance, the VR7000 was awarded the 2017 CES Innovation Award.

Pre-orders for the special Star Wars limited edition POWERbot will begin on the Samsung.com website on October 10, with availability in the United States. As part of the launch, Samsung will also introduce its “Vacuum Your Space” video which is created by Star Wars super fans.
