Google Body Browser is Google’s latest educational tool. It is a completely detailed outline of the human body. On the left you will find a slider that lets you select different layers of the body: the external skin, muscles,bones, organs, and the nervous system.
As you move the slider, the image of the body on the right is updated. You can zoom in and out of the image and rotate it as you wish. Clicking on a body part highlights it and displays its name. In case you want a particular body part located, you can use the search bar located at the top. [ via. supriyablog ]
