ok. what if instead of using 12 word mnemonics for private key seeds, we made you play a drum solo on your keyboard. no im not kidding. you use like d f j k and an 8 bar random beat is displayed and played, you play it back until you get it reliably
drum solos instead of passwords
this toot is under GPL
i worked out that 8 bar by entropy btw. if you use half, quarter, eight, sixteenth and d f j k randomly you get 128 bits of entropy (the amount needed for a bitcoin wallet seed). that'd probably be hard mode, 4 bars would get you enough for most passwords
xkcd declares "correct horse battery staple" as 44 bits of entropy. on easy drum mode that's just a 3 bar solo
The equivalent of using "password" as your password in this new system is just going to be using Phil Collins' drum solo from "In the Air Tonight"
@cosine (aware I keep showing up in response to your spitballing ideas ^^;)
There was actually a proof of concept along these lines for a password system that didn't require the user to consciously know it. It was essentially Guitar Hero. They'd throw a certain sequence of notes in more often, and you'd subconsciously learn it. Then to log in they would confirm that that sequence was performed significantly more accurately relative to unfamiliar sequences.
update: i have rhythm generation and a guitar hero style thing set up. now to do password generation and raw presses interpretation
