It ain't a mind-bending concept, but the Keyport Slide solves a problem that far too many humans have. Put simply, this multi-key tool allows users to store both key imprints and digital files in a single device, and for those on the hunt for something to match their Sunday best... well, look no further. The outfit has just introduced a foursome of new Slide colors: Gunmetal, Zircon Gold, Copper, and Champagne. Starter bundles are still listed at $79, and if you believe the outfit's CEO, there's "much more on the horizon." You know, like the initial shipments of its $10 Mini-LED, which was also revealed today. Tap that source link if you're gushing with joy (and we know you are).

Keyport's Mini-LED for the Ultimate Keychain Alternative Is Now Available Along with New Slide Colors

Keyport's Universal Access Device Shines a Light on the Shortcomings of a Bulky Keychain

HENDERSON, NV- April 4, 2011-- Only a month removed from introducing its USB flash drive insert, Keyport, Inc. announces that its mini-LED insert, designed to fit securely in the Keyport Slide V.01, is ready to ship. Lightweight and compact, the Keyport Slide consolidates keys and other personal items (thumb drive, bottle opener, LED) typically crammed onto a keychain and streamlines them into a single universal access device. About the same size as a traditional key fob that holds only one key, the Keyport provides access to each of the six ports with just the slide of a thumb.

Keyport's new water-resistant Mini-LED features two lithium ion batteries that last up to 15 hours. "Adding a light to the Keyport's growing set of features not only illuminates darkened hallways and difficult to find keyways, but it also shines the light on the inadequacies of a bulky keychain. In this case, bigger is definitely not better," says President David Cooper.
