Google Glass has joined our crippling agoraphobia and our sack of fries as something we'll have to sort of hide if we want to get in a movie theater. The reason: on Wednesday, the MPAA placed a ban on Glass or any other wearable technology that could be used to bootleg or cheat on the pre-movie trivia.
The question of legality already came up earlier this year when a man wearing Google Glass during a screening of Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit was later questioned by the FBI and Department of Homeland Security, as their priority is defending Chris Pine films, no matter how lukewarm the reception. But now the MPAA and National Association of Theatre Owners have made official a "a zero-tolerance policy" on the devices, boldly cautioning, "Individuals who fail or refuse to put the recording devices away may be asked to leave." And then where would we go with our fry sack?
