You can zoom across the globe with Google Earth. You can see the street view of Paris with Google Maps. You can search any term across the web with Google.
Today, you can explore the amazing human body with Google Body Browser. When you're done reading this, head on over and explore away.
Things I love about it:
- You can select layers such as the skeleton, the muscular system, the nervous system, the organs, the nervous system, or the circular system.
- You can pan and zoom from any angle
- You can layer one layer with another. For example you can show the skeleton, and layer the muscular system over it at, say 10%, to see how the muscles attach themselves and work.
- You can add labels to any part of the body to have Google Body Browser show you what you are looking at.
I'll certainly be bookmarking this is a 3 dimensional way to learn about the body - and the girls love it too!
