Let\u2019s face it. There\u2019s very little that\u2019s threatening about a Stormtrooper. From their extreme gullibility to poor aim with laser rifles, no one within the Star Wars universe considers them a serious threat. Which is precisely why they make perfect robot companions.\r\n\r\nRobotics company Ubtech is launching a Star Wars First Order Stormtrooper robot that features voice commands, facial recognition, and sentry patrolling. Scare the cat, annoy the dog or just chill out and have some fun with the little guy.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\u201cWe are thrilled to launch the Star Wars Stormtrooper Robot,\u201d said James Chow, CEO, Ubtech. \u201cBoth Star Wars and Ubtech put a great focus on innovation and family-friendly technology. Together, we are delivering a new and interactive experience for Star Wars fans.\u201d\r\n\r\nYour personal Stormtrooper features augmented reality (AR) capabilities via the companion app. Use the app to defend the First Order against the Resistance in your own home, issuing direct verbal orders, and launch attacks in first and third person views.\r\n\r\nVoice order your Stormtrooper to patrol a designated area to detect and respond to intruders. Create a database of up to three faces using the facial biometrics feature for customised interactions. Just a heads up, the Stormtrooper does not connect to the internet. Instead, it lives within a closed WiFi network.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe Star Wars First Order Stormtrooper Robot by Ubtech sells for\u00a0AUD $499 and is available for pre-order now from all good tech retailers.\r\n\r\nIn other Star Wars news, we went hands-on with the single-player campaign in the upcoming Star Wars Battlefront II. Head over to find out why the game\u2019s protagonist is the \u201c007 of the Star Wars universe.\u201d\r\nCheck it out\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
