Google now mapping the human body too

Share


They’ve mapped most of the urbanised world with their Street View maps, are aiming to digitise every book ever published, and now Google are turning their hand to a bit of biology.

The Google Body Browser is the latest addition to the Google Labs testing area, and acts like an interactive visualisation of the human body, allowing you to peel back layers of the body and search for organs, bones and other anatomical tidbits.

Very useful for medical students, simply sharing the URL of what you are viewing will bring the exact same image up for the recipient.

To use the Body Browser you need a web browser compatible with WebGL. Google Chrome 9 or Firefox 4 should do the trick.

Check it out by clicking here, or take a quick preview look at the service in the video above.
