World’s smallest SSD – encased in a Victorinox utility knife

Victorinox SSD
The world’s smallest SSD appears to be a lot smaller than you think it is. Encased within the company’s world-renown Swiss Army utility knives, the Victorinox SSD-knife is one cool gadget everyone will want to get their hands on. 

There is no way, by looking at this new Victorinox Swiss-Army utility knife, that you’d even remotely guess the presence of a capacious 256GB SSD inside. Looks can be deceiving though, and yes; this is a 256GB SSD compressed to the size of a thumb drive. And no, it isn’t just any flash drive.

To start with, this tiny SSD lists support for both USB 2.0 and eSATA. It does puzzle me though, that USB 3.0 is not used instead, with a premium product offering this level of transfer speed. The flash drive comes with a 32-bit processor onboard for hardware error correction, dynamic power management, and a software suite to set up things like backups, synchronisation and a password manager.

The specifications also mention an e-paper display, for labelling of the flash drive, as well as a whole suite of security implementations including data encryption. For those who require less amounts of storage (at a presumably lesser price), capacities of 64GB and 128GB will also be available. As for the ‘knife’ part of utility knife, this Swiss-Army knife is equipped the whole host of usual, er, knives. It also comes with a nail file and screwdriver.

Pricing has yet to be released on this cool new gadget.
