Swiss Army Presentation Pro
Will it be one of the greatest products for 2012 ?
Victorinox has unveiled a Swiss Army knife with a USB flash drive that holds 1 terabyte of data.
The company has had a USB knife in its line of products for a while, but the Victorinox SSD comes with several new features: it connects to eSATA II/III as well as USB 2.0/3.0 with a single connector, it has a monochrome graphic display showing what’s on the drive and it supports 256 AES encryption.
Data transfer speeds are 220 MB/s for reading and 150 MB/s for writing data, and the availabile capacities range from 64 GB to a whopping 1 TB.
Of course, the knife also has a blade, scissors, nail file with a screwdriver tip and a LED/laser pointer. All you frequent travelers needn’t worry – the drive can be interchanged between the fully-equipped body and the flight-friendly body, which comes without the pointy stuff.
The company has also launched the Slim 3.0 USB drive, which goes up to 128 GB on the storage side and offers 10 times faster data transfer than the previous version.
Both devices will be available in April 2012 at a yet unannounced price.
