Google Body Shows You Your Inner Workings

A few years ago we introduced Geek News readers to the "Visible Body", a cool new tool that gave users and interactive human anatomy visualization. At the time the visible body was a free tool but has since become a subscription based service. Today we are pleased to introduce users to a great alternative, Google Body Browser.

Google Body is a detailed 3D model of the human body. Using your web browser you can peel back anatomical layers, zoom in, click to identify anatomy, or search for muscles, organs, bones and more. You can also share the exact scene you are viewing by copying and pasting the URL.

You need a Web browser that supports WebGL.
Try: Mozilla Firefox 4 Beta | Google Chrome Beta or Chromium | WebKit nightly -

Generally I'd suggest using the latest Firefox beta but it wasn't working correctly for me. I downloaded and used the latest beta version of Google Chromeand had no issues. I didn't even need to use the steps listed in the link above. Just went straight the body browser and everything worked great.
