Google to Map the Human Body With Body Browser 1

Google announced last Thursday its new online mapping technology called the Body Browser. This Chrome-OS driven online Gray’s Anatomy is a detailed, interactive 3D model where users can search, explore different layers of the human anatomy.

The Body Browser continues Google’s aim to map everything from the world’s roads to the human body. What’s more is that those who will use Google’s Body Browser will be able to rotate and zoom in on any parts of the body that they are interested in.

The demo is publicly available at Google Labs but users will need a WebGL-enabled browser (the latest version of Google Chrome Beta). WebGL is a standard that allows one to visualize complex 3D graphics (like in the case of the Body Browser) in the browser without using a plug-in.
