Google Labs Body Browser 12-01-2011
Google Labs have released an interesting new application called Body Browser which lets you explore the human body in 3D.
It's early days for the app and it's a bit basic at the moment but pretty cool nevertheless.
Kind of like Google Maps for the human body you're able to search, rotate, zoom and peel back layers of flesh to reveal muscles, organs, bones and finally the nervous system.
It's definitely worth a look, but because it's built using cutting edge tech you'll need to download the latest version of Google Chrome (now in beta) to view it (we couldn't get it to work in Firefox).
Body Browser has obvious medical uses but it's a good reference application for the layman, and quite a humbling experience to navigate the entire make-up of the body with such ease and detail.
It's one to watch we think and it will be interesting to see how the app develops over time or allows third party integration.

- The squat is a fundamental movement that will strengthen and tone the lower body. You should be skilled with the bodyweight exercise before trying weighted variations. Read more about the fundamentals of the squat in our guide.
