You don't have to own a Google Glass to be a glasshole.
Patrons of Molotov's bar in San Francisco reportedly attacked a technology writer named Sarah Slocum on Feb. 21 for wearing her Google Glass in the bar, reports San Francisco's CBS Local News.
“OMG so you’ll never believe this but… I got verbally and physically assaulted and robbed last night in the city, had things thrown at me because of some *** Google Glass haters …” Slocum wrote in a Facebook post.
According to Slocum, she was showing someone at the bar how Glass works when two women and a man confronted her, and the man snatched the Google Glass off her face.
A witness told CBS that a man accompanying Slocum then hit a man who was verbally abusing her.
"The crowd was jeering as any last call crowd would do with a fight outside of a bar," a witness named Brian Lester told CBS.
Slocum was later able to recover the Glass, which she said has video footage of the confrontation. Slocum's purse and phone were also stolen, she said, and are still missing.
This isn't the first time wearable technology has apparently prompted an attack. In July 2012, employees at a Paris McDonald's confronted so-called "human cyborg" Steve Mann over his headset and mounted video camera.
There has been rising tension between longterm San Francisco residents and well-heeled tech workers, who are blamed for pushing up rents and prices in the city. Google Glass would stand out as a trapping of the high-tech newcomers.
