Wearables, including Google Glass, must be put away in cinemas
Bad news for those of you who've decided to sport your Google Glass everywhere you go. It reads, in part, "Other recording devices, including wearable devices, must be turned off and put away at show time." In other words, it's not enough to just power down your Google Glass, you've got to put it away too. That might be a little difficult for those Google Glass users who've attached their prescription lenses to the device, as they'll need to bring backup frames. The axe on wearables in cinemas comes as no surprise - Google Glass has been banned in several similar scenarios before. Days after Google announced Glass would be coming to the UK in June, UK theaters universally banned the device. Comic-Con 2014 attendees found an update in their Convention Policies handbook informing them Google Glass wouldn't be allowed during film screenings. The MPAA / NATO policy doesn't specifically ban Google Glass, but it bans wearable recording devices, and there aren't too many of those around except for Glass.
