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

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 Stormtrooper version replicates the iconic white and black look of his minions.

There is one key difference that sets these models apart from the standard Samsung PowerBot vacuum, though - they come pre-loaded with Star Wars phrases and music that will play as they clean.

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. It can even work autonomously, using Visionary Mapping™ Plus to remember the room and find the fastest cleaning routes around the user's home.

FEMA can't stay in Puerto Rico forever
Trump has been roundly criticized for his administration's response to Hurricane Maria , which devastated much of Puerto Rico . MSNBC's Joe Scarborough just noted that Trump is treating Puerto Rico because "these are people who do not look like him".

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.

The Darth Vader model comes with Wi-Fi connectivity and its own remote control.

That's why it makes so much sense, then, that Samsung has announced it's releasing robot vacuum cleaners inspired by the Dark Side. Both models have unique sound effects that are appropriate for each character.

Cool temperatures into Thursday
A gloomy day with showers and storms sticking around with highs this afternoon well above normal topping out in the mid 70s. We're tracking the chance for showers around the Monday time frame, but at this point it doesn't look like a deluge.

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

In the wake of the new trailer for the upcoming film "Star Wars: The Last Jedi", Samsung seeks to get in on the action by releasing its limited edition Star Wars-themed vacuum cleaners.

The Darth Vader and Stormtrooper models have been priced at $799 and $699 respectively.
