Samsung Wants To Clean Up With ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’

Timed to the release of the “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” trailer, Samsung took the wraps off limited-edition versions of its VR7000 Powerbot robot vacuum cleaner.

The vacuums have the same cleaning technology as the original VR7000 but with Darth Vader and Stormtrooper designs. They also add in sound effects — such as Vader’s deep breathing — and the Vader model comes with a remote, built-in Wi-Fi and a digital display.

Suggested retail is $799 for Darth Vader and $699 for the Stormtrooper.

Samsung said it worked with Star Wars fans to design the devices from start to finish, a first for the company. They are currently available for pre-order and will begin shipping Nov. 5, according to Samsung’s website.  

The movie trailer premiered during halftime of the Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings game on Monday night.
