Samsung launches Star Wars-inspired robot vacuum cleaners

Samsung launches Star Wars-inspired robot vacuum cleaners”

Samsung has partnered with Disney and Lucasfilm for a duo of limited edition Star Wars versions of its VR7000 Powerbot robotic vacuum cleaner.

Both robot vacuums feature 10-Watt suction power, CycloneForce technology and the ability to clean close to walls and edges.

The Darth Vader model differentiates itself from the Stormtrooper model because it features Wi-Fi, a 7-segment digital display and comes with a remote control whereas the Stormtrooper model only has an indicator light in place of the display and doesn't come with a remote.

They can also remember your rooms through Visionary Mapping Plus technology and come with plenty of other smart features to boot. Samsung has worked with Star Wars fans during product planning, design, production, marketing, and distribution in order to get the products right for fans.

The Empire in Star Wars can be accused of many things, but one of them is not uncleanliness - Darth Vader's cloak is always pressed to perfection and it's very much to the credit of the Stormtrooper's that they're able to keep those white uniforms so pristine.

"We are confident the Star Wars limited edition of the VR7000 will be a big hit". A sensor ensures that the robot vacuum will clean around personal items as small as 10 mm.

Both models are now available for pre-order from Samsung's website for $799 (around £600) and they're expected to ship from the week beginning November 6. As part of the launch, Samsung will also introduce its "Vacuum Your Space" video which is created by Star Wars super fans.

The POWERbot VR7000 is available in Australia, but whether Samsung will bring the Darth Vader or Storm Trooper models here is yet to be announced.
