Travelers will find a keychain sized wifi finder a boon; use it instead of booting up to locate a wifi hotspot. Imagine lugging an open laptop around a foreign city, watching a stumbler program while you stroll and looking for a place to get online. Not. Now, imagine clicking a button on the mini wifi hotspot locator in your pocket and finding a wifi connection just-like-that. Snag a comfy seat and pull out the laptop.

Very cool must-have item for a flashpacker. Almost a laptop backpack accessory, really -- you'll probably carry it in a cargo pants pocket.
