We just talked of Google Glass yesterday that it can detect people for you from their clothing rather than their faces. But today's update is something that Google would not have catered for even before the magic gadget hits the stores: Google Glass gets banned in Seattle bar over privacy concerns.
For those looking to use their Google Glasses solely for taking pictures and record everything and anything they desire, privacy will most likely be a delicate topic when talking about this particular product.
Dave Meinert, Owner of 5 Point bar in Seattle, announced on Facebook of such issues that users might face:
For the record, The 5 Point is the first Seattle business to ban in advance Google Glasses. And ass kickings will be encouraged for violators.
First you have to understand the culture of the 5 Point, which is a sometimes seedy, maybe notorious place. People want to go there and be not known … and definitely don’t want to be secretly filmed or videotaped and immediately put on the Internet.So the kick-start for Google does not seem to be very easy as obviously something that infringes upon your privacy is certainly worrisome. We will be following the launch of Google Glass and the report public concern as it is launched.
