Star Wars has probably been responsible for the creation of more spin off products than any other film franchise in history. Here we share our top 12 of the coolest Star Wars gadgets that we have discovered.
1. R2-D2 USB Car Charger
This R2 unit sits in your vehicle’s cup holder and is powered from the cigarette lighter. Once connected it can charge 2 USB devices at once (each socket provides 2.1 Amps). For added geekiness R2’s head also rotates, he chirps and his eye lights up.
[ Purchase from Think Geek for $39.99 ]
2. Jedi Training Ball Alarm Clock
Be awoken in true Jedi fashion by the Jedi training ball, though admittedly it just makes a noise rather hitting you with a stun beam. To deactivate it you can either use the force or throw it at the nearest wall, something I think we all want to do to our alarm clock from time to time.
[ Available at latestbuy for £20.85 (~$33) ]
3. Darth Vader Toaster
Make toast with the power of the Dark Side, the Darth Vader Toaster burns a graphic of our favorite villain (or the Star Wars logo) onto each piece of tost, what more could any Star Wars fan want for breakfast.
[ Buy from Big Bad Toy Store for $44.99 ]
4. R2-D2 Cufflinks
Not the first-time R2-D2 has carried some “digital secret plans”, now you can too with the R2D2 4GB USB Flash Drive Cufflinks both stylish and practical.
[ Available over on Cufflinks.com for $200 / Pair ]
5. Darth Vader Force Glove
Using the power of magnets you too can use the Force to move objects. The glove comes complete with “super strong” magnets to push or pull objects around. Comes complete with magnetic cutouts, so you can push droids or pull a lightsaber. If pnly it would work with TV remotes.
[ Buy at ThinkGeek for $19.99 ]
