|Swiss Army makes office presentations sharper|
Friday, 25 November 2011 13:16
A digital spin on an old staple will lend a flashy, razor sharp edge to your next office and boardroom presentations.
Your usual arsenal of weapons for delivering knocking-‘em-dead, pointed PowerPoint presentations are about to get far more interesting than the run-of-the-mill laptop computer and pocket projector. One thing is for certain, unless you’re a chef who is about to give a cooking demonstration, when you pull out a knife at your next meeting, you are bound to immediately have everyone’s rapt attention.
But as long as it is the Swiss Army Presentation Manager, no one is likely to call security on you. With this pocketknife, Swiss Army knife manufacturer Victorinox has ushered these knives into the digital age.
Apart from packing all the usual Swiss Army knife staples, including the knife blade, the nail file with the screwdriver, the scissors, and the key ring, this baby also sports an unusual, flashy surprise: a removable USB memory stick with a biometric fingerprint reader, a pressurised ballpoint pen and a two-button Bluetooth remote control for PC/Notebook. To help you get your point across even more effectively, it even has a laser pointer.
The only thing you’ll need to remember is to remove it from your hand luggage before you fly. But in case it does get confiscated by airport security officials, at least you can be consoled by the fact that your company secrets will be protected from prying eyes, since it can only be accessed via the fingerprint reader or the password. The fingerprint scanner can be programmed to read and recognise up to ten different fingerprints.
The Swiss Army Presentation Manager has different models which are determined by the storage capacity size of the USB flash drives, including 8, 16 or 32GB of memory. The latter will set you back R3 718 and is available locally via online retailer TakeALot. This will be a great holiday gift for the boardroom warrior or CEO in your life.
