January 14, 2008 Victorinox used the 2009 CES as the platform for the launch of their new Presentation Pro, a compact Swiss Army Knife that includes a laser pointer, Bluetooth remote control and USB storage of up to 32GB which, in a first for the company, integrates biometric fingerprint security.

Slated to hit shelves in May '09, the USB drive on the Presentation Pro can be removed so that it can be carried in the cabin during air travel and there is also a bladeless "flight friendly" version on offer for the same reason. The 508dpi capacitive biometric sensor can be partitioned for up to ten users, with each user can able to access only the data tied to their particular fingerprint. The integrated Bluetooth controller is designed for giving powerpoint presentations, works at a range of up to 100 feet and includes two control buttons to emulate left and right mouse clicks.

Other accessories include the blade, a nail file, philips head screwdriver, scissors and key ring.

The Victorinox Presentation Pro is priced at USD$169.95 for the 8GB version, $224.95 for the 16GB version and $334.95 for the largest (32GB) version. Knock off around $5 for the bladeless model in each capacity.

This would be great for the business traveler, except for one HUGE problem: the lovable Nazis in the TSA will confiscate it as a dangerous weapon if you try to carry it on an aircraft. Good thing the flash drive is removable, because you'd never be able to work with it in transit.

Then you just get the "Flight" ready version. I thought they changed the rules to allow small pocket knives. Nice of them to "allow" us some freedom. oh for the good ol' days...
