Swiss Army Knife adds MP3 player to survival tools

The world-famous Swiss Army Knife has added yet another tool to its roster of multi-use capabilities: an MP3 player, a Reuters report said.

The report said the "SwissMemory s.beat" from Swissbit and Victorinox was an all-in-one, flash memory-based digital audio player and USB storage device built into a Swiss Army Knife.

The detachable player supported all major file formats, included a time-shifting FM tuner and featured eight hours of playback time, the report said.

The report added that aside from the digital music player, the s.beat also included standard Swiss Army Knife tools such as scissors, nail file, screwdriver and a blade.

The report said an airline-friendly version, which did not include tools, was also available.

While the 1GB version retailed for $170, pricing for the 2GB and 4GB versions were not yet available, the report said.
