Google Glasses have been banned at the Guantánamo Bay war court, a Miami Herald reporter tweets:

The Huffington Post reports that this ban comes "days after she was asked to remove her Google Glass on the site."

"Guantánamo allows journalists to take photos and videos as long as they agree to submit all footage to a security review, during which officials can delete certain images, such as those that show a prisoner's face. However, Rosenberg's Google Glass, which she says she wanted to use to conduct interviews, was turned away," the Huffington Post reports.
