Bar Bans High-Tech Glasses (Video), Seattle 5 Point Cafe Nixes Google Glass with Facebook Post
Bar Bans High-Tech Glasses?
Seattle’s 5 Point Cafe has already banned Google Glass, the cool new high-tech eyewear that is basically a smartphone you wear as glasses, complete with camera and video all available at the command of your voice.
They are not yet widely available, but the 'dive bar's owner says he wants to stay in front of a problem, he wants his patrons to have privacy.
The bar posted a message to their Facebook page saying:
"For the record, The 5 Point is the first Seattle business to ban in advance Google Glasses. And [butt] kickings will be encouraged for violators."
"You have to understand the culture of The 5 Point which is a sometimes seedy, maybe notorious place and I think people want to go there and be not known," 5 Point owner Dave Meinert said.
He adds that patrons of The 5 Point certainly don't want to be secretly videotaped.
"Part of this is a joke, to be funny on Facebook and get a reaction, but part of it is serious because we don't let people film other people or take photos unwanted of other people in the bar because it's kind of a private place people go."
Watch a video below of how Google Glass feels.

The eyewear could be available as early as the end of they year.
