Google Glasses Banned in Strip Clubs Too

While some bars have already expressed reluctance in accepting customers with Google Glasses, strip joints joined the bandwagon as the technology could be too disruptive and intrusive.

Having the potential of being used to constantly record and broadcast videos; it raises serious privacy concerns for casinos, strip clubs, theaters and other places. Although Google Glasses have not yet been released, some have already expressed concerns.

Google Glasses Banned in Strip Clubs Too“My immediate concern for [Google Glass] was from a sexual predator view point,” private investigator Drew Donofrio, told NBC News. “Locker rooms, bathrooms, playgrounds “¦ all [Glass] requires is a line of sight.”

Arguing that recording technology has always been banned from places like these, managing partner of Sapphire Gentlemen’s Club in Las Vegas, Peter Feinstein said people with the Glass will be treated the same as those who try to sneak in hidden cameras

“We’ve been dealing with the cellphone videoing and the picture taking over the years and we are quick to make sure that that doesn’t happen in the club,” said Feinstein. “If we see those in the club, we would do the same thing that we do to people who bring cameras into the club.”

Personal user privacy is also being addressed, as some believe the technology may look “innocuous” from afar when in fact it could be used to peep on people. It remains to be seen whether laws and institutions will keep up with the new technology and adjust policies.
