Swiss Army Knife MP3 player
I think the Swiss Army Knife is one of the coolest old school gadgety things in the history of gadgets. Well, guess what, the little Swiss Army Knife is “old school” no more. This new version has got a flash based MP3 player built in and a USB drive.
In addition to the regular tools -- 2" blade, mini scissors, nail file with nail cleane -- this little gizmo comes with an MP3 player in 1GB or 2GB capacity (a 4GB version should be out later this year). The player will play MP3, WAV and WMA files, it has an FM radio, and even a voice recorder. It also comes with an external remote control and is equipped with 2 headphone jacks so you can share with that special someone.
For those who want to travel with this and not be stopped by airport security, there is a flight version available with just the player, but who wants that when the player can be removed from the knife so you can toss it into your luggage while keep the player in-flight? Those Swiss folks thought of everything, didn’t they?
1 GB version available at Think Geek for $169.99 USD.
