Yep, and it could probably just be an OAuth link...

Been thinking about easy ways to configure new devices on the home network, and if you can get to 'em with one web browse, it should be super easy to configure other device accesses from there.

You wouldn't even need any special scanning software, you could just display the key as a standard 3D barcode.

Airdroid and a few other programs do that, there is also a cell phone payment provider that does it.
