• Star Wars Spyware Gadgets Coming This Fall from Jazwares

      At the Consumer Electronics Show held in Las Vegas, new Star Wars licensee Jazwares, Inc. unveiled several new gadgets from their upcoming Star Wars Spyware line, including an exciting new search and capture game as well as Star Wars-inspired tools for night vision, voice changing, listening and security. These should become available this fall.

      "The theme behind Star Wars Spyware is bounty hunters," says Joe Amaro, Director of Product Development for Jazwares, "so these are tools of the trade that bounty hunters, troopers or anyone can use to help track, hunt, spy and find anyone."

      The following product images and descriptions are preliminary and subject to change pending approval, but they do give some idea of the cool gadgetry coming our way from Jazwares.


      Search & Capture Sensor:

      Just like the notorious bounty hunter Boba Fett, kids can track down their prey with the Star Wars Search & Capture Sensor (sharp-eyed fans will recognize this design as similar to the device used by Han to locate Luke on Hoth). The Search & Capture Sensor helps track down bounties with a hot/cold sensor. Featuring lights and sounds, the sensor reads the bounty chips (three included) and fans can play with up to five friends. Additional chips are sold separately.



      Night Vision Goggles:

      These will allow kids to see at night and may include a "sonic hearing" device that will amplify sound so kids can listen in on Rebel spies. There may also be some type of targeting device incorporated.



      Voice Changer:

      Now fans can transform their own voices into their favorite characters from Star Wars. The Voice Changer features three different character voices -- including Darth Vader, General Grievous and Boba Fett. Simply breathe into the voice changer to sound like one of the most notorious villains in the galaxy!



      Perimeter Droids:

      Based on the design of Darth Maul's seeker droids from The Phantom Menace, these "perimeter droids" will sound off when a beam is broken between them. Perfect for guarding a doorway from Rebel infiltrators!



      Spy Hunter Watch:

      Patterned after Jango Fett, this watch has a built in LED saber dart, tells time, and has a motion heat sensor alarm. When put on a table and activated, the heat sensor alarm will sound when someone walks by.



      Vader CD Boombox:

      (This was previously a European exclusive from another manufacturer) As music blasts out of the speakers, the imposing eyes of Darth Vader are set aglow with bright red LED lights. The radio CD player is compatible with any model MP3 player and includes six control buttons to adjust the music. The volume control button is integrated into Darth Vader's mouth where the CD is positioned to play. Batteries not included.

      Also planned are Star Wars digital cameras, alarm clocks, and an R2-D2 MP3 player. Stay tuned for updates on these and other products coming soon from Jazwares!

        These are kinda cool, but the name "Spyware" is incredibly poor since that term is used for a type of malicious computer software.

      Indeed. My dad had dementia, but he also had lung cancer. About a couple months after he started treatment for the cancer, his mind kind of gave out.
