Victorinox is no stranger to modding Swiss Army knives, by adding modern-day technology such as flash storage to the already handy tools. Two years ago, Victorinox made one of its multi-purpose knives with an "unhackable" drive that featured 256-bit AES encryption, and a thermal fingerprint reader.
If someone tried to break through the security, the device's tamper-proof design burned the memory chip to prevent data theft. How cool is that! The company unveiled some newer designs at CES 2012, and boy does it look cool.
The device is simply called "SSD," and the storage goes right up to 1TB, providing hard drive-like capacities in a USB flash drive-like size. It also comes in 64, 128 and 256GB sizes, with all devices sporting connection through USB/eSATA 3.0.
The company says:
Carry your files, (like, all of your files) in your pocket, (just to be clear, we're talking about every word document, presentation, song, funny cat photo, last year's taxes, a movie, or two, or fifty, and whatever else.) Take it all with you -- the SSD securely stores and transports up to 1 terabyte of data.
