At first glance, this may not seem like a photography article. But trust me, it is. Or at least, I want it to be. Earlier today I got a message from my friend and sometimes author here, Patia Stephens. All it said was “Want,” with a link to an article on this product – a new 1-terabyte SSD Swiss Army Knife from Victorinox. They announced the new 1TB SSD Swiss Army Knife at the CES tradeshow in Las Vegas and it’s been making the rounds of the gadget Web sites today. It looks like your standard garden-variety mini Swiss Army Knife. But along with the knife, scissors and nail file, it also contains a 1TB SSD hard drive – which you can store photos on!
Victorinox hasn’t officially announced a price for the 1TB SSD Swiss Army Knife but Internet speculation is that it will probably cost about $2000. The SSD knife will also be available in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB capacities. If you can’t afford the (projected) $2000 price tag for the Victorinox SSD knife, they also announced new USB 3.0 Swiss Army Knives at CES. The Victorinox Slim 3.0 is faster than a USB 2.0 drive and comes in 16GB, 32GB, 64GB, and 128GB capacities. It’s available with or without the actual knife, so you can take it through airport security without having it confiscated.
