Victorinox shows off $3000 1 terabyte SSD/Swiss Army Knife

If you're reading this, odds are pretty good that you'd want a one terabyte SSD drive. But how much are you willing to pay for it? If the anwser is "three big boys", Swiss army knife maker Victorinox has something that's right up your alley. That's the asking price for the 1TB / Swiss army knife combo they're showing off at CES.

The unit comes with a tiny terabyte drive encased in plastic, and swappable sleeves can apply a standard knife/scissors/file combo, or a non-bladed metal sleeve for airline travel. The drive's connector works on both USB 3.0 and e-SATA, and the drive's 256-bit security should make the most hardcore of security advocates happy. Failing that, an auto-destruct mode (software only, of course) will enable if it detects a brute force attack.

The drive won't be available until August, and a Victorinox associate said that they're still considering the $3K price. (For that much, I'd like a fold-out cappuccino machine and a death laser.) For the more economically practical, the company is still offering its flash drive/knife combos.
