Well, it’s been a while since Google Glass has been available for Explorer program users and developers, but no one has been gutsy enough to take apart a $1,500 Glass prototype — until now, by Catwig. In the end, everything is rather simple: the Google Glass headset is just a ton of flexible components attached to a shell that just so happens to be fixed to the human head.
If you’re interested in specifics, what was found included: a custom Synaptics touchpad on the side which lets the user interact with Glass,a Google X-branded logic board, a TI OMAP4430 chip, 16GB of SanDisk flash, and an Elpida mobile DRAM chip. The battery is around 2.1 W in capacity — around 570mAh, if you convert it. Oh, and the display is 640×360 pixels in resolution.
