Google Glass Passport Photo Denied

Ben Thornsberry had to redo his passport photos and took new shots while wearing his Google Glass. When he went to the passport office to redo them, he was sent back to take new photos. The question is why.

Ben shared his disappointment on Google+, with passport photos in hand. He wrote, "I guess I can't have Glass on for my photo. The courthouse just sent me away to get a new photo taken."

If you read the passport requirements, they do allow you to wear "prescription glasses, a hearing device or similar articles" if you normally wear them. But they do not allow "headphones, wireless hands-free devices or similar items."

Where does Glass fall?

We know a Tennessee driver was able to use his Glass in his drivers license.
