That means you can go anywhere without having to carry any idenfitication cards, credit/debit cards, driver's license, etc with you. Let's say you buy a six pack of beer at the beach grocery store (you're wearing only a swim trunks and sandals), you simply "swipe" your hand over the reader at the cashier.

That is what our government is trying to do this. Greece is turning into a cashless society - only 1500 Euros or more. If you purchased anything that is more than 1500 Euro with cash, you will be arrested. Nigeria is a cashless society, too. Scary.
That would be awesome. Then we could walk around naked, since the only need I have for pants is to carry all of my money.
