Google body browser
Google has released a new Body Browser experiment that shows a detailed 3D model of the human body in Google Chrome web browser beta. Users can view through the anatomical layers of human body, zoom in and navigate to explore the human body parts. The new Google Body Browser is pretty commendable for use in a medical education environment.

Body Browser is supported only by browser with WebGL support. WebGL is a cross-platform web standard for low-level 3D Graphics API exposed through the HTML5 canvas element. This experimental feature lets you identify whether you wish to explore male or female anatomy. Rest is all based on your interests and interactions with the 3D model of a human body. You can click and zoom in to different anatomical layers to see the finite details.
You can also share the exact visual you’re viewing with others using the specific link from the Address bar of the browser.
Google Software engineers are making the best out of HTML5 web standard and with the WebGL support built-in, the browser doesn’t require any additional Flash, Java or any other graphics plugin to be loaded.
Body Browser might be supported in latest beta/final versions Chrome, Firefox and Opera web browsers in the near future.
