Robotic vacuums have been a thing for a while now. They faithfully clean up our homes 24/7 like the little drones they are. That saves us humans a lot of time and energy because we no longer have to do the job ourselves. With these robot servants being everywhere, I’ve often wondered why manufacturers don’t make them more unique, with more color options, fun designs or even some good old fashioned geek branding. Well Samsung is finally getting hip to the fact that our robot vacuums should be more unique. And so the POWERbot VR7000 series is going Star Wars.
These limited edition Samsung POWERbot VR7000 series vacuums look like a Stormtrooper and Darth Vader. The stormtrooper costs about $700, and the Darth Vader version is about $800. This is a great way to really stick it to the galactic empire. Both Vader and Stormtroopers used to be feared throughout the galaxy, but now? Now, they are sucking dirt from your floor and serving at your pleasure. That is how you defeat and demoralize an Empire my friends. Especially when you let your cat ride Vader.
The Darth Vader version comes with Wi-Fi connectivity and its own remote control. “Luke, I am your Roomba!” Nooooooooo!
