Google Can Help Explore The Whole Human Body
Posted by pratyushkp
For those who are not complacent with just maps and news on Google, a hi-tech 3D application is waiting to entertain them which can help them explore the human body similar to exploring world on Google maps. This ‘Google Body Browser’ can help users view through the anatomical layers of human body using a handy search bar. It can dissect and identify the organs, strip the bones and enables users to look at the whole body from different angles. Clicking on a body part calls up its dedicated label and isolates that part by dimming the surrounding area.
Also this innovative browser promises to revolutionise people’s understanding of the human body and fast-track medical research according to various news reports. It is likely to be the perfect tool for those hypochondriacs who like to use Google to find out what is ailing them and who will get a gruesome thrill from analysing every last vein.
Another intriguing feature is its WebGL which will
allow complex 3D graphics to be used on normal web pages, without the need for specially adapted browser plug-ins like Flash or Java.
The Body Browser works on Google Chrome Beta, but also on other browsers that support Web GL – 3D, HTML 5 based technology. The beta versions of Safari and Firefox are also said to support the tool.
