They haven't even been released to the public yet, but already the potential of Google Glass to help those of a more dishonest nature is being quashed.

Legendary Las Vegas Casino, Caesar's Palace, has confirmed patrons will be forbidden from wearing the innovative headgear inside its walls.

In a statement to The Verge, the casino said:

Nevada gaming regulations (and those in other states, as well) prohibit the use of computers or recording devices when gambling. As a result, we cannot allow guests who are gambling to wear Google Glass.

The move is hardly surprising seeing as traditional recording methods are already banned. And since Glass promises to take personal recording, image taking and communication to the next level, with voice control and integrated cameras, this was pretty much certain to happen.

Glass is currently being trialled by 1,000 "Glass Explorers" to so-far mixed reviews.
