Samsung launches 'Star Wars'-themed robot vacuum cleaners

The Darth Vader version of the robot vacuum has a special cover that has been created using premium materials that resemble Lord Vader's all-black mask.

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.

Some fans believe that the characters are positioned in a way that forms Darth Vader's iconic headpiece, with the robed Luke Skywalker at the top forming the crown of Vader's helmet, while Rey and Kylo Ren are positioned where the Sith Lord's eyes would be.

Additionally, the Darth Vader edition comes with Wi-Fi connectivity and a remote control. It was a first-of-its-kind approach to building and launching a product designed by the fans and built for the fans.

Eagle-eyed fans are theorizing that the latest Star Wars: The Last Jedi poster holds a hidden homage to franchise villain Darth Vader.

Each cleaner has suction capacity power of 10W. It's the same VR7000 robot vacuum underneath, with its 10 watts of suction power, CycloneForce technology, and Edge Clean Master features. FullView Sensor™ 2.0 allows the unit to clean around home decorations and valuable personal items as small as 10mm. It even has an app that lets you control the droids and are compatible with Google Assistant and Alexa. With its unique smart features and powerful performance, the VR7000 was awarded the 2017 CES Innovation Award. But of course, being a limited edition Star Wars version you expect it to do something neat.

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