AMC Theaters Calls FBI on Google Glass User

A Google Glass user from Columbus, Ohio got more than he bargained for when he went into a AMC Theater at Easton mall with his wife reports The Gadgeteer . The man says that he and his wife go to the theater weekly and he has worn his Google Glass to the theater several times. The man says that the Glass he uses has prescription lenses.

The man says that while he and his wife were sitting in the theater watching the Jack Ryan film a person came to his seat, flashed a badge, and grabbed the Google Glass off his face telling him to follow them outside. The man complied and said outside the theater were 5-10 cops and mall cops.

The man says he asked to see the officer's badge again and asked for his Google Glass back. The officer reportedly said he was with the "federal service" and told the man he had been caught illegally taping the movie. The Glass user says that the glasses were off and that the officers also took away both his phones and put him and his wife in separate rooms.

The man says that he and his wife were questioned by the officers for over an hour. He alleges that the officers told him he was not under arrest and could leave, but if he did bad things may happen. The Glass user said that he asked them repeatedly to hook the Glass to a computer and see that there is no footage of the film stored on the device. After an hour of questioning and prodding by the authorities, they finally hooked the Glass up and told the man he was free to go. The "Movie Association" reportedly gave the man free passes to see the film again.

It's worth noting that wearing a device capable of recording a movie into the theater is a dumb move even if you aren't recording. It's also worth noting that no evidence that this happened actually exists.

Unlike Google Glass, Android Wear probably won’t get iOS support

When Google introduced Google Glass, the wearable display only worked with Android phones and tablets. It took some time, but last December Google created a MyGlass companion app for iOS, allowing iPhone owners to get most of the same functionality from Glass as Android users. That’s not likely going to happen with Android Wear, however. The first clue was when Dave Singleton, Google’s Android Engineering Director, shared m ...

How do you make a computer that people will want to wear on their face? “You have to make it light,” says Isabelle Olsson, the lead designer of Google Glass, the computer-equipped eyewear. “You can’t expect people to wear goggles all day long.” Over years of trial and error, Olsson guided Glass through hundreds of bulky prototypes to its current sleek (if not necessarily stylish) look. Here’s how Google’s computer went from goggles to Glass. 2010: The first Glass prototype “was literally a backp ...

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
