Google Body browser: zooming into the human body

Google browser Body

zooming into the human body

anatomy trip on the computer: The search engine giant Google has released a 3-D model of the human body. It allows the well-known Google Earth zooms. Muscles, bones, organs can be switched on and off. Anyone who wants can even explore the body from the inside.

Google know how happy surfers stock with gimmicks. Years ago, Google Earth caused a stir. How does it actually in the garden next door, hidden behind a high wall? Later Google Moon and Google Mars added, now even 3-D views supported. And with all the excitement around Street View became almost in the background that virtual walks are very popular especially among the Germans.

The search giant from Mountain View, he knows everything in the world stored on its servers will have the principle of the zooming Explore now transferred to the human body. With the application Body browser, Google has provided a detailed 3-D model into the net. It requires a Browser that supports WebGL. Google's own Chrome browser dominated this standard, but for example, Firefox 4 beta. (Note: The link to Chrome at the Body-browser page of Google is wrong - here Download it ).

When calling Body browser is showing a boy dressed in shorts and sports bra woman. Whoever the next adjacent control slowly pushes it down, skin and clothing is always transparent - the underlying muscle strands are visible. And so it goes level by level and on. When pushed further, the controller, the muscles disappear - and bones, internal organs, nerves and blood vessels emerge.

Naturally, the body free to rotate - and who wants to can zoom in on specific body parts. The zoom journey ends not on the body surface - it goes well into the interior of the body. As it will become really exciting: Am I in the stomach? Or is it the liver? Fortunately can be switched on labels that will help lay the anatomy.

who want to can even view the nervous system and muscles at the same time. Because the transparency can be adjusted each fine, no detail remains hidden.

The idea of a transparent human body is not new. As early as 1930 was the occasion of the 2nd International Hygiene Exhibition in Dresden a glass man presented . It had built the taxidermist Franz Tschackert. In a jam factory Dresdner he could use a large steam boiler to form in hot water, steam the plastic Cellon - the transparent outer skin.

time was the man of glass as a technical and scientific sensation. Viewers could light up the internal organs by pressing a button in succession. The exhibit was a major export of the museum's own workshops in total were prepared according to the museum about 30 pieces. Up today in the Dresden Museum of Hygiene shown glass woman was built in the early eighties.

is noteworthy that both Franz Tschackert and Google were the first to create a transparent woman. The developers of the Google Labs will soon provide for equal rights, however: "A male model is coming soon," they promise.
