Google Body Browser Gives Detailed Look at Your Inner Workings

Now it looks like Google wants to actually invade the human body. The company just took the wraps off a new tool which uses WebGL called the Google Body Browser. The new utility allows you to view the human body in intricate detail right down to the muscular tissue, skeletal structure, nervous system, and even major organs.

The Google Body Browser starts off as a fully clothed person which can then be "zoomed in" to get a rotatable, 3D look at just about any area of the human body. In keeping with Google's roots, you can even search for specific bones and arteries and see them pointed out on the 3D model.

Google Body Browser

Since the Google Body Browser is based on WebGL, there is no need for plugins such as Flash or Java. Instead, you only need a supported browser to enable the demo -- in this case, that happens to be the Dev release of Chrome 9, or the latest Firefox 4 beta.

Chrome 8 (stable build) users can also get in on the action by typing in "about:flags" in the address bar and then enabling WebGL.

You can see YouTube demonstrations of the Google Body Browser here and here (if you don't have a supported browser). If your browser supports WebGL, you can try it out for yourself here.
