A bar bans high-tech glasses to protect the privacy of its patrons even though the glasses aren't even available yet. Google Glass, not Glasses, are currently in development, but a low-end bar in Seattle, Wash. has formally announced their intention to prohibit the product from its establishment via a notice on their Facebook page, according to a Mar. 8, 2013 report by mynorthwest.com.

SAN FRANCISCO — Google on Tuesday acknowledged to state officials that it had violated people’s privacy during its Street View mapping project when it casually scooped up passwords, e-mail and other personal information from unsuspecting computer users.
The agreement paves the way for a major privacy battle over Google Glass, the heavily promoted wearable computer in the form of glasses, Mr. Cleland said. "If you use Google Glass to record a couple whispering to each other in Starbucks, have you violated their privacy?" he asked. "Well, 38 states just said they have a problem with the unauthorized collection of people’s data."
