Recently, Google has introduced Body browser, which let you explore the human body just like exploring the world in Google Earth. Body Browser is a detailed 3D model of the human body.  User can view  anatomical layers, zoom in, and navigate to parts that interest you. Click to identify anatomy, or search for muscles, organs, bones and more.

How it Works

Surprisingly, this application doesn’t require a plugin. Unlike other web based medical applications, no Flash, Java, or other plugins are needed. This application will run on any WebGL supported browser. WebGL, a 3D graphics API that can be run directly within the browser.

WebGL is available, but not enabled by default in Chrome 8 (the latest stable version). Type about:flags in the address bar, click "Enable" next to "WebGL" and then click on "Restart now". Please note that this is an experimental feature in Chrome 8. * WebGL is enabled by default in Chrome 9 Beta,  and Firefox 4 beta.
