Seattle bar bans Google Glasses

Washington, Mar 11 (ANI): A US bar has banned much-awaited Google Glass inside its premises citing privacy concerns for patrons.

According to a report by GeekWire, the 5 Point, a Seattle bar, posted a notice on its Facebook page last week that if someone wants to grab a pint, they’ll have to remove the 1,500 dollars glasses.

“For the record, The 5 Point is the first Seattle business to ban in advance Google Glasses,” the post read, Fox News reports.

“And ass-kickings will be encouraged for violators,” it added.

Dave Meinert, the bar’s owner, told KIRO-FM that people coming to the bar definitely don’t want to be secretly filmed or videotaped and immediately put on the Internet. (ANI)
