I wish the Star Wars camera watch and Star Wars Stormtrooper Digital Camera were around when I was a kid. Today’s kids have got it good these days – especially if they are Star Wars fans.
The best thing I had as a young Star Wars fans was a few action figures and a board game – nothing compared to the cool stuff you can get today.
VTECH STAR WARS CAMERA WATCH – $89.95
The VTech Star Wars Camera Watch comes in three styles – Stormtrooper Black, Stormtrooper White and BB8 Orange.
Each has a stylised matching band with official Star Wars branding and characters.
The device has a 1.44-inch colour touchscreen and a built-in memory of 256MB – enough room to store about 1600 photos.
The camera has a 0.3-megapixel resolution for images and 320 x 240 for video and is built into the top edge of the watch so you can line up your photo while it’s on your wrist and frame it up on the screen.
Users can also add Star Wars themes, frames and filters to their pictures
But it’s not just a camera. There are also three Star Wars games onboard that are motion sensitive so they can all be played while you’re still wearing the watch.
There’s Asteroid Battle where you’re piloting the Millennium Falcon and shooting asteroids, the BB8 Rotation Puzzle and the Find the Fighter game where you have to destroy Tie Fighters.
But it doesn’t end there, there’s also a voice-changing recorder, sounds effects like Rey’s lightsaber, Kylo Ren’s lightsaber, BB8, C3PO, Millennium Falcon, X-Wing and TIE Fighter that are activated when you move your arm around.
There’s also a pedometer, alarm clock, timer, stopwatch, calculator and a calendar.
If you’re a young Star Wars fan this will be one of the coolest things you can own.
Available from JB Hi-Fi and Toys R Us.

The device has two large grips on either side of a 1.8-inch colour display along with a directional control.

And, yes, there are games so it is a portable gaming device as well. The three games are: Fighter Battle, First Order Escape and BB8 Run.
