The Wifi Dowsing Rod provides comfort to people who may be overwhelmed by current technologies. Mike Thompson has adapted the familiar form of a divining rod—believed in the past to be able to locate underground sources of water— into a tool that seeks out and indicates the strength of the unseen wireless signals that are all around us. Thus a tool of the past is evoked in fulfilling the needs of the present.
