Samsung now has Darth Vader and Storm Trooper VacuumBots

These Star Wars POWERbot vacuums by Samsung are available for pre-order starting Oct. 10

Mini-figures, phone cases, fancy dress; these are the things you'd normally expect find toting Star Wars inspired designs, not a Samsung robot vacuum.

If you've lamented the lack of Star Wars-themed home cleaning appliances, then Samsung has just the robot vacuums for you. There's no confirmed availability in the Middle East yet, but the Star Wars PowerBots are available to pre-order in the U.S. for US$799. Both models have unique sound effects that are appropriate for each character.

The Stormtrooper version is meant to look like a white and black Stormtrooper helmet. The Darth Vader model mimics the character's infamous labored breather when turned on.

The Stormtrooper calls out "Let's go!" when it begins cleaning.

The Vader POWERbot also comes with Wi-Fi connectivity and a remote control; Samsung doesn't say why the robot needs the remote but there's a good chance you'll soon be able to see YouTube videos of tech pranksters freaking out cats and bothering dogs with the Vader bot.

Honeywell International Inc. (HON) Set to Announce Quarterly Earnings on Thursday

There's nothing new other than the cosmetic changes.

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

As Vacuum cleaners, the two are essentially the same, with 10 watts, CycloneForce technology, and Edge Clean Master to really get all the dirt. The Visionary Mapping Plus feature enables the vacuum to work autonomously by mapping the room and finding the fastest cleaning routes.

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.
