Google has recently rolled out an interesting WebGL application demo called Google Body Browser that lets you surf and explore the human body in the same way you explore and use the famous Google Earth! Google Body Browser is a quite interesting application able to show you a detailed 3D human body map in your browser. You will also be able to interact with this map by using commands to zoom-in, zoom-out, rotate, show layers, select or de-selct certain human body areas, search for certain body parts and more The technology is quite new so be sure to use one of the latest generation browser.

In fact, Google Body Browser only works with recent browsers such as: Google Chrome BetaMozilla Firefox 4 Beta , WebKit nightly and Other less known advanced browsers which fully supports HTML5 and WebGL. In order to “unlock” and turn on Body Browser you will have to:

  1. Download, install and open one of the browsers above.
  2. If you are using Google Chrome 8, you will have to type about:flags in the address bar, click “Enable” next to “WebGL” and then click on “Restart now”.
  3. Visit http://bodybrowser.googlelabs.com/
  4. Click one of the four pictures available on the page.

Keep in mind that in order to use Body Browser you won’t need any extra plugin such as Flash,  Java ect. because it runs on any WebGL supported browser. (WebGL will be supported by all browsers in 2011.)

    The developers should have created a male and female model. It seems creepy that only a female body was made. Maybe the majority of the developers were males….wink, wink-nudge, nudge and needed a little fun. The anatomy between the two sexes can’t be represented by one model. If they were going to put so much time and effort into this project why leave it only half done.

    I’ve been using this for a few days now and must say I am impressed, being a biology major for several years at college. I found it to be very fast, using the GPU for a lot of the rendering. I wonder why they choose a woman though. And if you really get bored, try making the skeleton dance.
