A man who is going by T.U. has shared that he was interrogated by FBI agents for wearing his Google Glass at a movie theater in Columbus, Ohio.  He and his wife were an hour into watching Shadow Recruit, when as he states “A guy comes near my seat, shoves a badge that had some sort of a shield on it, yanks the Google Glass off my face and says ‘follow me outside immediately.”  There were a few policemen waiting, and the man who brought him out was from the “Federal Service”.  They were suspicious that he was recording the movie on his Google Glass.  After attempts to reassure the authorities that he was not using the Google Glass to record the movie but rather as his prescription glasses, they were still not convinced.  It came to the point where they plugged his Google Glass into a laptop and looked through every item.  The Federal Agent went through all of T.U.’s personal photos and also his phone, but he eventually concluded that T.U. had not been recording the movie.

Some people are skeptical of all the details of this story.  It makes you wonder “Would an FBI agent really interrogate you for wearing your Google Glass at the movies?”  Getting prescription lenses for the Google Glass isn’t cheap; it was more than $600. If someone pays that money so they can use it to see better than they should be able to wear them anywhere they want.
