It looks a bit like Steve Gibson's SQRL (which uses QR code rather than bluetooth), which I think is an excellent idea. I just wish it was sponsored by someone more consensual/followed by the tech community.

But the idea of saving a private key on a locked down, app whitelisting, disk encrypted device (like an iphone) and to have a protocole that does not rely on a third party (which currently are mostly google and the social networks, the last people on earth I would want to share which sites I login to) is appealing.

or you could combine them: when Bluetooth isn't available then use a QR code
