so... your in a bar (fyi im old enough to be able to drink in them so have experience) and its quite a large bar / pub, your saying everyone in that bar has a right to hear your conversation even if its between two closed people sat at a table.. not only that but broadcast to the entire world

your literally insane if you think that’s ok kookoo.gif

Sure, it isn't illegal to smoke inside of a private establishment, but the owner can decide that it is unwelcome if he chooses.

9/10, would drink at this bar

While i understand these arguments you have to understand how some people would use the product. Having lost my dad a month ago having some records would hold an immense amount more value to me. Example last feburary my brother announced his wife was pregnant and we were all out to dinner at an olive garden. If i had a google glass there, sitting at our table recording it would hold an immense amount of value, and i wouldn't have been recording anyone else on purpose. If i even had someone else's voice on the recording i wouldn't care.

All of your thoughts are malicious. You think people will be using it to spy on people on purpose. Sure some people will use it maliciously, just like people drive aggressively. Things are misused its pretty much a fact of life. I don't see how this misuse is any different than the misuse, and should be treated differently. I mean if someone is recording you i'm sure you would be able to tell. In a bar that loud you'd have to be very close to hear anything, And if you do something embarrassing it's equally embarrassing if you do it in public regardless. A google glass doesn't have enough space on it to walk around, and record just to catch funny moments. It would need to have meaning to record as it doesn't have space for 24/7 recording.

and MANY will use it innocently passively and capture the next scandal as much as they capture a personal moment, conversation or land someone in deep crap at work etc..

btw sry for your loss. Personally i dont like having video footage of loved ones, id just sit there replaying it and depressing myself. Im happy with my own fond (perhaps too glossy and kind) memories.

What is the feasibility of establishments implementing technology similar to this to blind/jam cameras en masse?

Just because something isn't captured on camera doesn't make it any less of a scandal. You are seriously paranoid and might want to go grab a tin foil hat.

And if someone that records it knows you well enough to know where you work you might want to re evaluate your friends.

GOOOGLE it before you reply to my comment.

Yes. They're all public places in the sense that you're "out in public." You can't help the fact that other people will be there and that your privacy is limited. Other people will witness your presence as well as your actions. A strip club is a public place. No one but the owner of the establishment (or authorized security staff) can demand you to put away your Glass, or smartphone, or any sort of camera. Once you refuse to do so or leave the premises after being told to by the owner/authorized staff, however, you can be arrested.

i think you missed the point

its nothing to do with paranoia. others have echoed the same sentiments here. Just because your out in public shouldn’t give someone the right to record your every conversation or movement in a private establishment that’s located in the public arena. Also, people are entitled to not want this in certain circumstances, this isn’t a right or wrong in the traditional sense because this isn’t traditional technology.

I sure hope not, as that'd not only be a massive waste of taxpayer money and time, it'd also be an absurd attempt to cripple something that is one of the better paths forward for future technological gadgets.

If private business owners want to restrict themselves, they're free to refuse service (at least until someone decides to try and declare it discrimination, but that's a whole new can of worms on the other end of the stick, as it were).

Whenever any conceptually new piece of technology starts to become popular, you end up with functional luddites who try and resist change. We've seen it with pagers, cell phones, bluetooth headsets, tablets, and pretty much everything that is "different".

Wearable technology is here to stay, and trying to fight against that is absurd. Too bad it seems that absurdity is a pattern, it seems.
