    As more companies and stores are either embracing wallet apps (ie Google Wallet, PayPal Wallet, or Apple Pay) or creating their own, Google has begun moving on to the next evolution. Plaso will allow users to pay for items with their initials. At Panera and Papa Johns testers would say their initials to the cashier to pay for their items. Whether this actually become a separate payment system or an integration into Google Wallet will have to be seen.

    I think there is a missing piece to this. Perhaps your phone/nfc, along with your initials just incase your phone is stolen.
