Not all that long ago the availability of a 1TB solid state drive (SSD) was big news, now you can fit them in your pocket ... or in this case, your pocket-knife. Shown last week at CES, the Victorinox SSD features two interchangeable bodies - one with traditional Swiss Army Knife blade, scissors and nail file/screw driver combo, plus a second flight-friendly casing without any pointy bits. When the 1 TB model hits the market later this year Victorinox says it will be the world's smallest high-capacity SSD drive available.

The tiny SSD (which will be available in 256 GB as well as 1 TB capacities) has combination USB2/3 and eSATA 2/3 connectors, AES 256 encryption on both the hardware and the software, and it can sense if it's being hacked - if the hacking software is getting close to the password it will automatically burn the chip. The company says it is targeting an August release date and a price point in the US$2500-3000 range for the 1 TB model.

Wow, this is more memory than i have in my head. Is there anyway this thing can be plugged into my head so that i can back up my memory? We await the day when we can aquire instant knowledge.

This is nothing but a status symbol. I doubt James Bond would have 1TB of data that he needs to carry encrypted.

I believe these are actually TSA approved. I know the Slims are.

I think it is way cool - in a geeky sort of way. :)

Ed, It\'s right in the article: \"...plus a second flight-friendly casing without any pointy bits.\"
