Wearable technology such as Google Glass has been in the news from time to time, although not for the right reasons. It seems that not all places welcome the presence of Google Glass, such as Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada, as well as a dive bar in Seattle. In fact, the UK government also mulled over the possibility of introducing a blanket ban for Google Glass for drivers, while seven states in the U.S. also intend to do the same. This time around, a popular bar in San Francisco’s SoMa (South of Market) area known as The Willows, has decided to ban Google Glass outright on the premises.
Broke Ass Stuart was first off the blocks to report using Instagram that The Willows in SoMa has asked their patrons to “kindly remove” their Google Glass prior to entering. The sign, as you can see above, mentioned, “Our patrons have expressed concern with being recorded while enjoying themselves.” Not all Google Glass owners would be pleased with this arrangement, but I see it this way – it is somewhat a “dress code” to adhere to, although you can probably call this a “tech code”. There is no need to get upset over it, would you be upset when you’re asked not to come in slippers and a t-shirt when attending an opera?
