Google is the encyclopedia of all things. It maps your known universe, from your childhood home to the constellations above your head. Now it also gives you a window to the inner workings of your body.
The interface of Google Labs’ new software Body Browser is straightforward: you can rotate a three-dimensional image of the human body, and peel back its layers one by one. Peel away skin and see the muscular system; peel away muscles and see the skeleton, central nervous system and organs. Each layer can be hidden as well. There is also a search function that allows you to look up everything from the liver to a superficial palmar arch. (More on Time.com: Want Good Health? There Are 10 Apps for That)
Google says its software doesn’t require a plug-in like Java or Flash, but users without a browser that supports WebGL, like Google Chrome or Firefox 4, won’t be able to use it. Instead, they can watch a demo that Google put together on its development blog.
