Lenovo Star Wars Special Edition Yoga 920 (from S$2999)
With The Last Jedi about to land in cinemas (15 December, in case you didn’t know), a rash of Star Wars merch has been released. Luckily, some of it isn’t just desk-warming. Our pick of the best includes Lenovo’s latest edition to its convertible Yoga laptop series, the Star Wars Special Edition Yoga 920. Choose to join the Rebel Alliance or rep the Galactic Empire with two versions available: in black or white with sleek Gorilla Glass covers etched with your side’s logo.
Each machine, which runs on Windows 10OS, is futuristic on the inside too, with an up-to-eighth Generation Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of memory, 1TB of storage and 15.5 hours of battery life. Other bells and whistles include a fingerprint reader for biometric authentication and far-field Cortana technology that recognises voice commands from up to 4m away. Preorder at CEF 2017 for drops from this weekend onwards.
Samsung Powerbot Star Wars Special Edition VR7000 Robot Vacuum Cleaner (from S$949)
A Star Wars vacuum cleaner? Now we’ve seen it all. Samsung’s latest robotic version comes in Stormtrooper and Darth Vader options, the latter costing S$100 more just because, well, it’s the Dark Lord innit? (It’s also a limited edition.)
For that price, you get major suction power for all surfaces, intelligent power control that helps your robot detect what kind of flooring it’s on, plus ultimate domination via the Powerbot app – you can listen to your vacuum make Star Wars sound effects as it responds to your commands. This may just be the one time you can give someone a vacuum cleaner and not have them complain. Available for preorder from today to 14 November online from several stores, including Lazada Singapore.
Klipsch R5 Neckband headphones (S$199)
With so many new and premium smartphone releases happening right now, the only decent thing for manufacturers to do was to come up with accessories to match. And Klipsch has stepped up to the plate with the R5 Neckband - splash-proof, high-def Bluetooth wireless headphones equipped with a Qualcomm cVc mic to enhance voice clarity and reduce environmental noise.
The earpieces are joined with a flexible neckband bound with hand-stitched leather (in brown or black) that not only looks sophisticated, but serves as comfy padding for your neck. Comes with a built-in neck vibration feature to alert the user to incoming calls and Klipsch’s patent, adjustable ear tips. Buy online here.
Motorola Moto Gamepad (S$149)
Get your game on with Motorola’s new Moto Gamepad, which turns your Moto Z phone into a full portable gaming console. The dual control sticks, D-pad and action buttons will pimp up your Sonic or Mobile Legends experience, while the 1035mAh built-in battery can keep you going for up to 8 hours without recharging (and that’s really much longer than you should be gaming). Available from this weekend at CEF 2017, and from 10 November onwards at all Lenovo stores, Qoo10 and Lazada.
