Google has given us a ton of features such as Gmail, Chrome, Google Checkout, Google Voice, Google Maps and even the Android OS. But now something new is afoot at Google HQ.

Helping you understand the human body…

Google has recently demoed an interesting WebGL application called Body Browser. As the name suggests, it allows you to you to view the human body in intricate detail right down to the muscular tissue, skeletal structure, nervous system, and even major organs.

To use the utility, you need to have a WebGL enabled browser installed on your system. A few browsers that support WebGL are the Chrome9 Beta and the Firefox 4 Beta. As you can see in the video below, the Body Browser starts off with a fully clothed human, which can be zoomed in to give you a detailed 3D view of any area of the human body.

But if you do have a WebGL enabled browser on your computer, you can experience Google Body Browser for yourself here.
