Some gadgets improve your life, some gadgets make it easier, and others make you smile. The Star Wars Death Star shirt, does the latter, and potentially may terrify your enemies at the same time. I know what you’re thinking, “it’s a t-shirt, how cool could it be?”.
The answer: extremely cool. Everyone loves Star Wars, and anyone who says they don’t care for George Lucas’s seminal work will soon suffer the wrath of the t-shirt.
This officially licensed Lucasfilm collectable, features a gloriously large image of the Death Star, which honestly is pretty cool on its own, but it wouldn’t be a gadget without an added extra would it?
Well this t-shirt has a firing sequence. OK it’s not a real firing sequence like the Death Star actually had, but it does a great impression of one.
The speaker box, which is concealed under the cotton apparel, produces the noises of engaging lasers and Death Star technicians, and features flashing lights that complete the full experience.
If you want to truly terrify your enemies, make sure that you crank the volume to eleven to show them who’s boss. To achieve the desired effect you’ll need 4 AAA batteries, which aren’t included with the t-shirt.
The Death Star t-shirt is out now and retails at $29.99 (£20), an absolute bargain for something as cool as this. You may not find it under your tree this Christmas though, at the time of print it was sold out everywhere, but don’t worry, if it’s anything like the films, it’ll be joined by a sequel soon.
