Saucy 1TB of Swiss real estate

In case recent HDD price increases haven’t satisfied your lust for price hikes, then get a load of the Swiss Army SSD. Yep, you hear that right – an SSD tucked away in a Swiss knife.

Victorinox unveiled the product at CES 2012 and claims it is the smallest high-capacity SSD on the market. As you’d expect, the storage part can be folded out just like any other Swiss Knife component and comes with AES 256 security encryption for data protection.

The Swiss Army SSD boasts USB 2.0 and 3.0 support as well as eSATA. It comes with a Bi-Stable LCD graphics display with 48x96 resolution. The display is active even when the the drive is not plugged in.

And now for the sweetest part – these “Swiss drives” are priced from $470 for 64GB versions up to $2,000 for the 1TB version. So, if you happen to have a Swiss bank account, then treat yourself to a Swiss Army Knife SSD.
