I missed the news when it came out, but it looks like Google is going to retire their Google Body Browser, which is a real shame because, as a Biologist, I really liked that site. Apparently it wil be relaunched in the future in association with a company called Zygote Media. There’s no indication when Google Body will be taken down at present.
But in preparation for its departure, here’s a similar site that is well worth bookmarking as an alternative: BioDigital Human.
BioDigital Human works in the same way as Google Body – you can choose between a male and a female body, can decide which organ systems you wish to make visible and can pan and zoom around the entire body. For teaching about the human body it’s fantastic.
Sadly there’s no “cow mode” (for now) 🙂
