Google Glass wearers were treated to some new features with  XE10 update, but what’s hiding under the hood might be even more promising. Android Police posted their APK teardown earlier today, and their findings are nothing if not intriguing.

Even more interesting are the possibilities presented by potential music playback and gaze integration. Indeed, the files buried in the Gaze folder — which include double blink detection — may signal that eye control is one step closer to becoming a reality. You can find the full teardown at the source link below.
