With a device like Google Glass, you can be sure that it would not stray too far away from controversy. After all, privacy issues would surely be raised from time to time, and the latest person to have been evicted from a public area because he or she is wearing a pair of Google Glass would be Nick Starr. Starr was wearing a pair of Google Glass at the Lost Lake Café & Lounge, when the request was made by the establishment to remove the Google Glass – a request that Starr denied to follow, which promptly saw him being asked to leave the premises.
Starr no doubt wasn’t too happy with the management’s policy of banning Google Glass which could not be presented at that point in time, although right now, customers to Lost Lake Café & Lounge have already been asked to ‘refrain from wearing and operating’ Google Glass whenever they are inside. According to staff at the eatery, this creed had its point, since other customers’ privacy could be invaded by a Google Glass wearer. This is not the first time that an establishment has outlawed the use of Google Glass within, and I am quite sure that it will not be the last, either.
