SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A San Francisco bar is banning Google Glass over concerns that the Internet-connected, head-mounted computer will be used to record customers.

Trista Bernasconi, co-owner of the Willows, told KCBS she doesn’t want her customers worrying about the device, which has recording capabilities.

The bar in the city’s heavily tech South of Market neighborhood posted a sign asking customers to remove Google Glass.

The device is not available for sale to the public, but Google has given it out for testing and app development.
