SAN FRANCISCO — 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 among other functions.

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

Its decision came after a woman told police she got into an altercation at another bar when several people thought she was recording them with her Google Glass.

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