Few people have worn or even seen Google Glass, but early reviews have made businesses and government officials wary.

Already, Google Glass has already been banned by a Seattle dive bar and in some Las Vegas casinos. West Virginia legislators are trying to make it illegal to wear Glass while driving, The New York Times reports.

It’s currently a set of frames with a screen that appears above the right eye’s line of vision and connects to the Internet. With voice commands and motions, Glass can take photos or video, search the internet, conduct a Google Hangout or send messages. It’s like seeing Apple’s Siri before your eyes.
