    My First 48 Hours Wearing Google Glass

    BY TAYLOR HATMAKER | 3 hours ago

    I was one of the lucky individuals who were invited to be among the first 1,000 non-Google employees to pre-order Google Glass — Google’s much-anticipated computerized glasses. They can take pictures and video, give you directions when traveling and even translate foreign languages. With Glass, Google is aiming to disrupt mobile technology and go beyond just smartphones and tablets.

    ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – Casinos in several states are forbidding gamblers from wearing Google Glass, the tiny eyeglasses-mounted device capable of shooting photos, filming video and surfing the Internet. Regulators say the gadgets could be used to cheat at card games.

    Google Glass – A Week With New Technology
    BY RYAN FREDERICK ON JUNE 12, 2013 AT 8:00 AM

    Google Glass is undoubtedly the most talked about gadget of the year. As a technology company that has developed applications used by more than 10 million people, AWH prides itself on staying two to three years ahead of the digital curve. So after one of our developers, Johannes Setiabdui, attended Google I/O in May, we jumped at the chance to become part of the Glass developer community.

    Apparently AMC Easton and the MPAA frown on it enough to call in the Feds to detain and interrogate you.

    Ohio man questioned over Google Glass in theater
    January 21, 2014 18:56 EST
    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Federal authorities say they questioned an Ohio man they suspected of recording a movie in a theater with his Google Glass computer-in-eyeglass device. The government says no action was taken after the man confirmed the Google Glass was also a pair of prescription glasses with the recording function inactive. The man, who was not identified, was watching “Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit” at an AMC theater in Columbus on Saturday. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesman Khaalid Walls says the man voluntarily answered questions from officers with ICE Homeland Security Investigations.

    I still can’t believe he was interrogated by the FBI at Easton.

    But still, you have a feel fairly stupid wearing something with an obvious camera mounted to your head to a movie theater and then getting in trouble. Prescription glasses or not, it’s a glasshole move to assume it would be okay.

    Can I wear a Go Camera on my head to a theater, but it’s cool it’s turned off… time to have some common sense here.

    I think the same thing will happen here that happened with cell phones at concert venues. Eventually so many people will have them that there’s not much anyone can do about it. People will just take them off before they walk in and put them on when the lights dim. A lot of people with prescriptions will only be able to afford one pair of glasses, and this will be the pair they choose.

    If you can afford $2100 for Google Glass with a prescription lenses I should hope you could afford traditional glasses …. or hell even get lasik if you can.

    What kind of crappy recording quality would you get with a head-mounted camera, anyway? Every few minutes you’d be looking into a tub of popcorn.

    The part that bothers me about it all is this:

    “What followed was over an hour of the “feds” telling me I am not under arrest, and that this is a “voluntary interview”, but if I choose not to cooperate bad things may happen to me.”

    Seems to me you should either be under arrest or not under arrest, not some nebulous state where you don’t have to cooperate but there may be consequences.

    Also, movie piracy falls under the umbrella of Immigration and Customs Enforcement?!

    For a while now, under the term “intellectual property theft”.

    From my experience, the “authorities” are allowed to lie to you to get information or tangible items
