Magic wormhole

Found an interesting tool/service to transfer files directly from one computer to another. There are many ways transfer files via a third party, such as dropbox, and there are ways to copy between computers, such as scp and sftp. The Magic Wormhole is another way. The sender registers with a server that it wishes to a send. It gets a human-readable (maybe pronounceable is a better term) code, such as “7-guitarist-revenge” (see video). Sender shares that with receiver. The server only brokers the identities of the sender and receiver. The data is transfer directly between computers.
