Samsung's Latest Robot Vacuum Looks Like Darth Vader

12 October 2017

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

But the South Korean tech firm has decided that its line up of flagship phones, QLED TVs, and smart fridges needs a vacuum cleaning robot slathered in the iconic Darth Vader and Stormtrooper helmet designs.

Samsung has partnered with Disney and Lucasfilm for a duo of limited edition Star Wars versions of its VR7000 Powerbot robotic vacuum cleaner. This means from a smartphone you can start or stop the machine, schedule cleaning times, and check the cleaning history. If you have, Samsung has launched just the thing for you. Both models also offer fun and unique sound effects appropriate for each character.

The Darth Vader version makes the Sith lord's trademark heavy breathing sound.

Biogen Inc. (BIIB) Ownership Decreased by Gulf International Bank (uk) Ltd
The company has a market capitalization of $70.22 billion, a P/E ratio of 21.79 and a beta of 0.77. (NYSE:GIS) or 9,440 shares. On September 13 BMO Capital kept the company rating at "Market Perform" but moved up the price target from $284.70 to $377.00.

The Darth Vader model of this robot vacuum cleaner has Wi-Fi connectivity as well as its own remote control.

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.

VR7000 Star Wars limited edition includes all the core cleaning technologies that Samsung has introduced with the original VR7000m including the CycloneForce technology, the Edge Clean Master, and a suction power of 10 watts.

They can also remember your rooms through Visionary Mapping Plus technology and come with plenty of other smart features to boot. The Darth Vader edition sells for $799, while the Stormtrooper version is priced at $699.
