From the skin to the bone

2010-12-19 | Visualisatie

It’s like the equivalent of Google Earth for the human physique: The Body Browser. Google Labs now offers the possibility to explore a female body in 3 dimensions. A very nice illustration of the power of interactivity: you can peel back all layers from the skin to the bone. It’s also a powerful showcase for WebGL, a technology that allows 3D rendering in the browser without the need for plugins. To try the Body Browser you need one of the latest builds of Chrome, Firefox or Safari. Or you can just watch this video for a first impression.
