Google Glass Wearer Robbed At Venice Bar

On The Waterfront Cafe (Facebook)
We need to hear from you.

The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

A man was robbed of his Google Glass and laptop under threat of being tased at a Venice bar last night.

The robbery happened at On The Waterfront Cafe on Ocean Front Walk around 8 p.m. Monday, according to City News Service. LAPD Officer Wendy Reyes told CNS, "The victim was threatened with a Taser." Police said there were two suspects, but they haven't released descriptions.

Today just happens to be the day that Google Glass will be on sale for one day only for us commoners who don't have techie connections, but do have $1,500 to spare. Be careful where you flash that thing—and not just because it's an expensive toy. Cops are wary of the face computers on drivers and so are some bar-goers.
