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.

The Empire in Star Wars can be accused of many things, but one of them is not uncleanliness - Darth Vader's cloak is always pressed to perfection and it's very much to the credit of the Stormtrooper's that they're able to keep those white uniforms so pristine.

Samsung introduced a new Star Wars limited edition of the POWERbot robot vacuum cleaner, the VR7000.

The Darth Vader version of the robot vacuum has a special cover that has been created using premium materials that resemble Lord Vader's all-black mask.

You can control them via an app or with Alexa voice commands, but what sets these hoovers apart is their sound effects. The Darth Vader model mimics the character's infamous labored breather when turned on. They feature Samsung's proprietary (and aptly named) CycloneForce and Edge Clean Master tech to clean close to walls and edges.

Additionally, the Darth Vader edition comes with Wi-Fi connectivity and a remote control. The Visionary Mapping Plus feature enables the vacuum to work autonomously by mapping the room and finding the fastest cleaning routes. You can preorder both now at the Samsung website; the estimated ship date is November 5th at the time of writing.

That's why it makes so much sense, then, that Samsung has announced it's releasing robot vacuum cleaners inspired by the Dark Side. The Darth Vader edition sells for $799, while the Stormtrooper version is priced at $699.
