Check Out 10 Photos from a Google Glass Teardown

It’s the $1,500 teardown we’ve all been waiting for. Catwig has taken apart a Google Glass Explorer Edition piece by piece to reveal everything from the controversial (but tiny) camera to to the battery and microphone inside the earpiece. Their takeaway? The Google Glass design is “surprisingly simple.”

Catwig picked up a copy of Glass at Google’s Mountain View headquarters and quickly took it home to tear it apart and find out what was hiding under the hood. The group found a custom Synaptics T1320A touchpad controller inside of Google Glass, in addition to a TI OMAP 4430 processor, 16GB of flash storage provided by SanDisk, a 570mAh battery that’s “not replaceable” a display with a native resolution of 640 x 360-pixels and a few other hardware tidbits.

Even after breaking down Google Glass, Catwig was able to assemble it again and said it’s still working perfectly. Check out the gallery above for more information.
