'May the Force be with you' even when you are cleaning!
Samsung has launched a limited edition 'Star Wars'-themed Powerbot vacuum cleaner and it comes complete with Darth Vader and Stormtrooper designs.
The Darth Vader version comes made with custom premium materials - is meant to resemble the villain's all-black mask.
The Stormtrooper version is meant to look like a white and black Stormtrooper helmet.
Both models have unique sound effects.
The Darth Vader version makes the Sith lord's trademark heavy breathing sound.
The Stormtrooper calls out "Let's go!" when it begins cleaning.
Users can also control the vacuum through a smart phone app, and use voice control with Amazon's Alexa or Google Assistant.

The Darth Vader version goes on preorder October 10th in the U.S. for about $800, and it comes with Wi-Fi connectivity and its own remote. The Stormtrooper one will cost $100 less, but that version doesn’t have Wi-Fi or its own remote.

The products should be out sometime in March.
