Google Glass has generated a ton of excitement among tech enthusiasts. Not everyone affords to pay $1500 for a set of smart glasses. But it is nice to see all the neat apps developers are making for this platform. Google Glass will surely go through many changes before it is released to the market. Understanding what’s inside it is a good idea if you would like to know the true capabilities of this system. Catwig.com has posted a complete teardown of Google Glass already:
The teardown piece covers various parts of Google Glass, including processor, behind the ear module, speaker, and display. Google Glass has a TI OMAP4430, 16GB of SanDisk flash, and an Elpida mobile DRAM chip. The device has a 2.1 Wh battery inside but that is not user-replaceable.
Google Glass is going to be available to the public in 2014. There is going to be a serious debate about its effects on privacy before that happens though. Google will surely reduce the price to make this attractive to more people.
