For many people, a USB flash drive is like any other USB flash drive. Then there are people who want something that can more easily blend in with the rest of their gear, like a Swiss Army knife. That’s where the Victorinox Slim and Slim Duo drives come into place, but what about when you’re about to hitch a flight across the country?
Both the Slim and the Slim Duo are designed to be like real Swiss Army knives. In addition to the swing out flash drive you also get regular pocket knife things like scissors and a nail file. That’s not going to fly (terrible pun intended) with the guys and gals at the TSA, so how do you hang on to your docs without losing the cool of a Swiss Army flash drive?
Well, Victorinox is offering “flight friendly versions” of these drives too. The assumption is that these variants will offer the same kind of look, but they’ll lack in the sharp object department. Yeah, not as cool, even if you get to pick from red, blue, orange pink, green and silver.
In any case, the “advanced USB flash drives” of the Slim and Slim Duo variety will come in capacities as big as 128GB. That should be enough to store all the documents required for your, um, upcoming plot to overthrow the government.
Victorinox, the iconic brand behind the renowned Swiss Army Knives and the Secure Pro USB device has today announced the launch of new electronic additions to its technology range. Showcased at CES, the brand unveiled three new products – the Victorinox Slim, Victorinox Slim Duo and the Victorinox Secure SSD.
