Macbook Air (Early 2014) Magic Trackpad Tear Opening

I am very courious about the Track Pad of Macbook Air 2014, how come it operates with a tiny logic board. So I teared open it. Ithink this might be the first tear-down of this kind in the internet (^^).

There is a aluminium bar adhere to the back of the Track Pad. Remove it.

Removed all the screws attached to the Track Pad.

A layer of sensor is attached with the Track Pad. Tear it gentelly and slowly.

Finally, we did it. I noted that actually the upper layer Magic Track Pad is just glass, instead of metal.
