The Lost Lake Cafe & Lounge in Seattle, has taken a firm stand against Google Glass wearers, banning the device from the establishment.
Releasing an official policy on Google Glass through Facebook, the restaurant said that a recent customer was asked to leave the premises when they insisted in wearing Google Glass inside.
Their concern is that Google Glass weraers will take photos or videos of customers, without their knowldege or consent.
The post reads:
“We recently had to ask a rude customer to leave because of their insistence on wearing and operating Google Glasses inside the restaurant. So for the record, here’s Our Official Policy on Google Glass:
We kindly ask our customers to refrain from wearing and operating Google Glasses inside Lost Lake. We also ask that you not videotape anyone using any other sort of technology. If you do wear your Google Glasses inside, or film or photograph people without their permission, you will be asked to stop, or leave. And if we ask you to leave, for God’s sake, don’t start yelling about your “rights”. Just shut up and get out before you make things worse.”
The policy has sparked an online debate, with some supporting the restaurant’s decision, with others commenting in favour of Google Glass.
One comment made said: “You lost my business and probably dozens of my friends will be boycotting your establishment! Learn how the technology works! What if I wanted to take a picture of my food…. Idiots!”
But Lost Lake Cafe & Lounge was not perturbed byt the comment and replied with: “Ohh no…You mean we wont have a flock of google glass wearing man children stinkin up the joint. Shoot!!!! What are we going to do! The Google Glassers Boycott is actually hilarious.”
So it seems that the Google Glass device continues to divide the masses.
