Just to add I'm not supporting the fact that cinemas banned Google glass! Just stating that it's not unexpected. As wearable tech takes off they'll ultimately have to give into consumer demand and allow it like they do smartphones. I notice the ads in the cinema now ask people to put their phones on silent rather than turning them off for example.
It was kind of surprising the cinema made a resurgence in recent years given the price they're charging for tickets and the fact that everyone had 40-60" TV's which now only cost a couple of hundred quid. Once the 3D fad dies off I'm not convinced how well they'll fare. The cynic in me wonders if 3D is being pushed so hard because it effectively prevents people from recording showings! Everyone I know would rather see the 2D version of a movie when it's an option.
Got to say I'm seriously tempted... just wish I knew someone with them already so I could try it out for a while first...
