Google Glass is a very new idea to us as humans.  It is something not too long ago that was only thoughtto be a sci-fi idea. Now that Google Glass has become a reality as a real life physical product, it is amazing and for at least me it blows my mind. But what is a huge part of Google Glass? Its built-in camera. And unfortunately that built-in camera is raising some pretty serious questions concerning privacy.

Due to privacy issues Google glass has already been banned from several types of establishments; bars, strip clubs, and casinos. Most places of these types already have Google Glass in their crosshairs and have rules against them not letting anybody in if they are wearing a pair. These places do have probable cause to do so because Google Glass does have a built-in camera that can be used at any time the user pleases. Nowadays we don’t have much privacy with everyone walking around with smartphones in their pocket and people don’t want that little bit being taken away by people walking around with a camera strapped to their head.

On the other side of the argument most people nowadays already have a smartphone in their pocket with a camera built into it so what’s the difference between that and Google Glass’ camera? Not much.  There is one difference though, you more than likely won’t know if someone if filming you with Google Glass like you would if someone was pointing a phone in your direction filming you. But either way I can understand people being scared of Google Glass but banning it is too far in my opinion.
