Submission + - Intel WiFi syncs with dial-up modem sounds (

MrSeb writes: "A new patent from Intel hints that we might not have heard our last bleepchzzztdoingboingboing. The patent, called 'Audible authentication for wireless network enrollment,' outlines a system that uses coded bleeps, clicks, or even music to pair wireless devices. In essence, your TV would output a secret key in audible tones, and your wireless router would pick it up and grant access to the network. The obvious use case for this is keyboardless devices such as media streamers, or screenless smart devices like fridges, thermostats, and so on."
