Samsung presents the Star Wars version of POWERbot


A limited edition of the robotic vacuum cleaner POWERbot VR7000 has been presented by Samsung, as result of a collaboration between Samsung and Star Wars fans. Two new models with Darth Vader and Stormtrooper designs have been proposed by the company in anticipation of the December release of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” the final film in the Disney and Lucas Films saga.
The Darth Vader version of the POWERbot features a specially created cover using custom premium materials that resembles Darth Vader’s all-black mask while the Stormtrooper version replicates the look of a white and black Stormtrooper’s helmet.
The Darth Vader model features Wi-Fi connectivity and can be controlled remotely. Both models also offer fun and unique sound effects appropriate for each character. For example, when powering on the Darth Vader unit, the vacuum will play and mimic the character’s infamous breathing.
«We are very pleased to be part of the excitement leading up to the release of the Last Jedi and to be launching our limited edition POWERbot in partnership with Star Wars fans – said B.S. Suh, executive vice president of the Digital Appliances Business at Samsung Electronics. «From its industry-leading suction power, slim design, and smart features, to the wonderful character-themed voice feedback and sound effects, we are confident the Star Wars limited edition of the VR7000 will be a big hit.»
