Ever Wanted to Explore The Body?

He is watching you

Yesterday, I spoke about Google Labs in Gmail. It turns out Google Labs does more then just email. One of the really cool things they do is called Google Body. Google Body is an interactive way to explore the body. You can see all different parts of the body by choosing to look at different layers. You can also search for specific items; thus, allowing you to find where something is in the body. Now, obviously it is not the fastest thing at the moment because of all the 3D modeling, but I believe it will get better. What is really cool is if science teachers would start using this in corporation with smart boards. This would allow kids to better visualize the body, while at the same time having fun. I hope Google can improve this more, maybe even allowing dissections!
