Samsung's Star Wars themed robot vacuums are the droids you're looking for

Samsung's Star Wars themed robot vacuums are the droids you're looking for

These are essentially just limited edition versions of Samsung's original PowerBot vacuum so you can expect the same CycloneForce technology.

Samsung has unveiled a new colour scheme for their POWERbot VR7000 vacuum cleaners, showing off Darth Vader and a Storm Trooper options.

Debuting in theaters on December 15, Star Wars: The Last Jedi is directed by Rian Johnson and stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern and Benicio del Toro. The VR7000 robot vacuum cleaner is offered in two different styles, Darth Vader and Stormtrooper.

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. Both models can play music from the iconic series, and will make sounds according to their model. The Darth Vader unit comes equipped with Wi-Fi and a remote control, hence the higher price.

There's nothing new other than the cosmetic changes. It uses mapping tech to remember your home and discover the fastest cleaning routes.

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. (R2-D2 screwdriver, anyone?) But hey, if you're a Star Wars fan who's in the market for a robot vacuum, why wouldn't you want Darth Vader cleaning your carpet?
