Fotograph your bill and pay it... new stuff from Denmark

With all the new apps, technology and stuff, you can just build any payment produkt you like. It appears there is a Danish bank that has developed an app that lets you photograph your bill, send it to the bank and they will transfer the money to the proper account. And for those that master the Danish language: see the instructions of the Danske bank here.

I am not entirely sure if this application will really be a killer-app that fullfills its consumers' needs. But it's interesting to see that nowadays the development burden for banks is lower than in the mainframe-days, allowing for test-trials in the field rather than extensive market research.
