Swiss army knife.

Karin Mueller, an employee of Swiss company Swissbit, presents a Swiss army knife with an integrated 128MB USB Memory Stick (top right) at the computer fair CeBIT in Hanover, northern Germany. The 'SwissMemory' series, which includes a small data chip that can store anything from photos to MP3 files and can be plugged directly into a computer's USB port, is part of a strategy to win back consumers after the September11 attacks, when pocket knives suddenly became much less attractive for travellers as airport screeners started confiscating anything sharp or pointed.
