If you plan on attending San Diego Comic Con at any point this week, it’s best if you leave your expensive Google Glass headwear at home if you plan on watching some videos.
The convention has banned the use of the device from all film screenings this week.
The announcement comes via the convention’s official policies handbook. It only mentions the device being banned from film screenings, which means fans should still be able to wear it around the showroom floor. However, that information hasn’t been confirmed as of yet.
From the handbook:
You cannot wear Google Glasses during footage viewing in any program room. If your Google Glasses are prescription, please bring a different pair of glasses to use during these times.

Mike’s Musings: It makes sense to ban the wearable head piece from screenings because it avoids clips from being leaked out for people who didn’t pay to see them to watch. It’s all about protecting a company’s intellectual property, and I fully agree with the decision to ban the device. Who knows, maybe a ban on smartwatches is next.
