LAS VEGAS (AP) - Regulators in Nevada are urging casinos to ban gamblers from wearing Google Glass, the tiny eyeglasses-mounted device capable of shooting photos, filming video and surfing the Internet.

The state Gaming Control Board issued a warning Monday saying the devices could be used to cheat at card games.

New Jersey regulators issued a similar anti-Glass directive last week.

Several Las Vegas casino operators, including Caesars Entertainment and MGM Resorts, have directed workers to ask gamblers to remove the devices if they suspect it is being used to secretly photograph or record.

Nevada regulators advise that the techie glasses should be banned outright on the gambling floor. They warn that the device can be used to share information among colluding card players.
