Tool for locating wires/cables through the wall?

I like my stud finder and I use it a lot when working on home improvement projects. Is there such a thing as "wire/cable finder"? In other words, a tool that can locate wires through a drywall?

Although there are probably other companies that make them, Zircon makes a combination stud and metal finder. You can see all the specs at the Zircon site. They sell at HD for $59.86 and the model is Zircon Multiscanner i700. Good luck.
Zircons site gives more info than the HD site.

Thanks. Yep, this should be close to the one I am looking for. It does more than one thing, but as long as it can find live wires effectively, I dont mind having a 3-in-1 solution. Besides, I'll get one more cool toy in my toolbox
