UK Cinemas Prepare Ban on Google Glass Wearers

By Gary Cutlack on at

The piracy implications of Google's £1000 wearable smart-thing are being considered by the UK's cinema chains, with the chief of the Cinema Exhibitors' Association saying all outlets will be asking Glass wearers to stow them away in accordance with Google's instructions about not acting like an unpopular arse.

As well as the blanket cinema ban, Andrew Lloyd-Webber's Really Useful Group group is considering the implications of Glass on the theatre world, as the musical boss imagines a future in which even live performances are pirated and shared on YouTube. Although it'll be quite some time before a Glass battery can stay alive long enough to capture a school Christmas play, let alone a three-hour presentation. [Independent]
