What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, as Google Glass has been banned from all of Caesars palace and pretty much every strip club & bar. While apps like Winky lets you take photographs with a wink alone, people are getting increasingly worried about privacy with these high-tech eyes around.
Google is being met with resistance along the way; Google Glass Picks Up Early Signal: Keep Out.
“This is just the beginning,” said Timothy Toohey, a Los Angeles lawyer specializing in privacy issues. “Google Glass is going to cause quite a brawl.”
Possibly the first place to ban the use of Google Glass on their premises was The 5 Point Cafe, and now legislators in West Virginia are scrambling to ban the use of Glass while driving.
Meanwhile, Jay Freeman rooted the Glass already, exploiting a bug in the glassware. This opens up for all sorts of shenanigans and apps, and who knows how may sites & subreddits will appear, showing photo and video taken by Google glass where people weren't aware they were being filmed.

Will privacy be a thing of the past?
“Google Glass will test the right to privacy versus the First Amendment,” said Bradley Shear, a social media expert at George Washington University.
