Not wasting anytime waiting for a blackjack controversy, Caesars Palace in Las Vegas has gone ahead with a ban of Google Glass inside the casino.
A spokesman for Caesars was quoted saying, “Gaming regulations prohibit the use of computers or recording devices by persons who are gambling. Therefore, individuals wearing Google Glass would not be allowed to gamble. If they attempted to do so, would be subject to arrest under various state gaming regulations.”
This is a bit of a no-brainer for casinos and I’m sure there will be plenty more to follow suit with an outright ban of Google Glass by name – in addition to what appears to already be technically banned by Nevada state law.
