Just when I thought nothing could ever top the Swiss Army Knife with the hybrid USB key, Swissbit has come up with the s.beat, a Swiss Army knife with a built-in MP3 player. It'll be available in 1, 2, and 4GB capacities, and support MP3, WMA, even OGG Vorbis. As if that's not enough, there is also an FM tuner with six presets, a high-contrast LCD display, and a protective cap for the USB port in case you want to take it out of the knife entirely. A remote control, a set of headphones, a USB cable, and a rubber arm strap complete the Swiss Army package. Of course, there's also the standard knife, file, screwdriver, and scissors.

The 1GB and 2GB versions will be available on November 15th for 156 (US$276) and 235 (US$415) respectively, while the 4GB version hits shelves in Spring 2006 for an unconfirmed price.
