While Google Glass looks like a small delicate device, it is actually one of the most well built and durable devices I have ever owned. Before now we knew Google was known to demonstrate the durablity of Glass by taking it off of their heads and tossing it across the room. Well now the Glass team has made a video talking to Ajay who is a Senior Manager of Product Integrity at Google.

This video was made in response to all of the questions that Glass Explorers were asking. One of the main topics that I as an Explorer was wondering was about the piece of foil that is located at the end of the Glass prism. This is a major talking point because the foil has been known to start falling off. When this happens too much light starts to enter the prism and does not allow the user to see their entire display. Ajay explains that the foil is made up of several layers of metal and when moisture gets between the layers it tends to start falling apart. The third generation of Glass (the version that Explorers are wearing now) has had the foil sealed more than the second generation so this shouldn’t happen as much. Besides this talking point Ajay also goes over the fact that they have tested over 1000 units to test its durability.

Make sure to watch the video all the way to the end because Ajay does his own test right on camera.
