A teardown of Google Glass has been posted on catwig.com online that reveals its internal components and assembly details.

The initial entry point into the Glass enclosure is a single Torx T5 screw. This screw removes the "pod" from the main titanium frame, and is likely intended to be user-serviceable. We detached the frame and set it aside. Removing this screw also enabled us to read the Glass unit's serial number, tucked against a black surface behind the frame.

First we pried off the plastic casings around the display, located just next to the main prism. This exposed the proximity sensor and what appears to be an ambient light sensor. At this point we saw no obvious means for removing more plastic. We carefully prodded with spudgers and screwdrivers, but ultimately found an internal screw that was difficult to remove non-destructively.


Highlights:
● The touchpad is a full custom module made by Synaptics, driven by a Synaptics T1320A touchpad controller.
● Core chips powering Glass: a TI OMAP4430, 16GB of SanDisk flash, and an Elpida mobile DRAM chip.
● Lithium Polymer battery has a capacity of 2.1 Wh (roughly 570 mAh)
● Inertial sensor is an InvenSense MPU-9150.
