I'm hoping this tech will be a Facebook Login, OpenID, and oAuth killer (for login purposes). Then we can move to a web standards approach, and even remove Facebook login support.

Looking at the tech, I can see this is a 'passwordless login' kind of technology, and not an identity technology. So it won't generate a username, won't provide your e-mail address, etc.
I think realistically this means it's not a Facebook Login competitor - it's not going to be able to provide one-click registrations.
