CES 2012 : The Victorinox SSD – A Swiss Army Knife or SSD – It’s Both!
One of the coolest things I saw at CES was the Victorinox SSD – it’s a Swiss Army Knife and an SSD – how cool is that?
The Victorinox SSD (Solid State Drive) and Victorinox Slim 3.0 USBs offer unprecedented data storage capacity with security measures fit for protecting the most confidential of personal and professional documents. Each pocket-sized device packs anywhere from 16GB to one terabyte of storage capacity, is equipped to withstand a range of environmental and daily use factors, and remains true to the Swiss Army legacy of flawlessly designed products that endure.
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. The pre-loaded Victorinox Secure software suite is equipped with 256 AES combination hardware and software encryption, offering un-hacked, iron clad security for all of your important files.
The dual connector (combination USB 2.0/3.0 and eSATA II) fits any USB or eSATA port; offering the fastest read and write speeds of any external SSD in this form factor, which makes large data transfers a breeze. And the integrated bi-stable LCD graphic display screen allows users to record what is stored on the drive and also displays an available capacity status bar.
Each SSD is packaged with two Swiss Army Knife bodies – red and black. The red knife body includes implements – blade, scissors, nail file/nail cleaner and screwdriver, while the black knife body is bladeless. Use the red knife body for everyday use and snap the drive into the black knife body when traveling via airplane.
Some key features and benefits of the Victorinox SSD include:
- World’s smallest high-capacity SSD drive on the market to-date
- Variety of storage capacities: 64GB, 128GB, 256GB, and 1 terabyte
- World’s only SSD device with only one connector that fits into USB2/3 and eSATA 2/3 connectors
- World’s only SSD device with a Bi-Stable graphic display (E-Paper software) for labeling contents
- Handles automatic backup and synchronization issues in un-hacked AES 256 security (combination hardware and software)
- Each SSD comes equipped with two knife bodies, between which the drive can easily be interchanged—one is flight-friendly and the other includes traditional Swiss Army Knife implements (blade, scissors, nail file/screw driver combo)
