Body Browser.   (Google)

(Newser) – First, it took on land. Then it took on the oceans. Now Google has set its sights on a new target: the human body. Its "Body Browser" lets users explore the human body, layer by layer, with any WebGL-enabled browser (Chrome 9 beta or Firefox 4 beta). You can peel back skin, nerves, and muscle to reveal bones and viscera by sheer exploration, or one can search, in true Google fashion, for a specific body part.

The WebGL format also means that it is universal for HTML5-enabled browsers—no Java or Flash plug-ins required. Click to get a taste of the Body Browser.
