Google Glass

Claim: Glass hardware $152

13 May, 2014

IHS Inc., an information company, takes apart Glass and estimates that the parts are worth $152, about 10% of its $1,500 price tag. It adds, however, that engineering costs, software updates, and tooling costs make up for much of the rest of the $1,500 price. Google disagrees with their assessment:

While we appreciate another attempt to estimate the cost of Glass, this latest one from IHS, like Teardown.com’s, is wildly off. Glass costs significantly more to produce.
