I'm getting very fond of FIDO (and that's not my dog).
I'm hooking in my FIDO (Yubico) key, not convenient for users but if you want real security your passwords really don't even need to be that tough....

I think that U2F (universal second factor) is certainly on the horizon once they figure out how to get costs down in a mass market. To the ultra-paranoid though, it really wouldn't be an option. The credit card industry currently uses a card and those are being duplicated every day, I am pretty sure there will be a mass release of cloning devices right along with the mass release of U2F authentication devices.

Besides, it doesn't pass the rubber hose test. Most people would give up their password and dongle, right along with their credit cards and pin numbers.
