Atlantic City and Las Vegas casinos ban Google Glass
Las Vegas casinos like those owned by Caesar's Entertainment and MGM Resorts, have informed security to ask Google Glass wearing customers to remove the device if they suspect that it is being used to secretly take videos or still pictures. In New Jersey, it is more than just the individual casinos that are concerned with the device. The New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement has sent out a notice ordering the ban of Google Glass inside the 12 casinos located in Atlantic City.
While not a casino, earlier this year the 5 Point Cafe in Seattle also banned Google Glass to protect the identities of patrons that might be photographed or filmed at the bar.

Sounds like James Bond is in for some serious fun with Google Glass in Vegas... in the next James Bond, that is.

I still prefer those spycams - a camera bullt inside the middle section of a sunglass or normal glasses, records up to 2 hours at 720p on full charge (uses a hidden microUSB port to transfer data and charge) that are sold online here for $40 or $50. Perfect for recording stuff at places you are disallowed to use a camera, and, blackmailing girls if you know what i mean. There are various other forms - like a necklace, a pen, a can of coke, etc.
