Google Glass won't be available to consumers for months, but there's at least one Seattle bar where the eyewear will not be welcome.
The 5 Point, a self-described dive bar in Seattle's Belltown neighborhood, posted a notice to its Facebook page this week telling Glass Explorers looking to grab a pint that they will need to remove their $1,500 spectacles. The story was noted today on GeekWire.
"For the record, The 5 Point is the first Seattle business to ban in advance Google Glasses," the post reads. "And ass kickings will be encouraged for violators."
Losing battle, soon their will be devices connected to our optic nerve and other senses able to record entire experiences as they happen.
Can you imagine the court cases due to sex recordings?

You are driving down the road in the not to distant future when a police officer pulls you over, he scans you for current stats and driving eligibility. He looks at the scanner and says that you were driving while experiencing a level 2 human interface, this is not a major offense but still in violation of distracted driving laws. The officer quickly initiates a group interface where you are found guilty of a distracted driving violation and your account is debited the appropriate fine.
