Look Inside Your Head

visible bodyI came across this site the other day and thought it was pretty interesting. VisibleBody is a complete, fully interactive 3D model. In fact:

The Visible Body consists of highly detailed, anatomically accurate, 3D models of all human body systems. The models were developed by an extensively trained team with decades of experience in medical illustration and biomedical visualization. All anatomical content has been reviewed for accuracy by our panel of experts, including physicians and anatomists. The beta release includes content covered in an undergraduate-level Anatomy and Physiology course. Years of modeling and enhancement make it the most sophisticated and complete 3D model of the human body available.

Free to sign up and pretty neat to tour around, what practical applications does it have? Well, unless you work in science, not a whole lot, but it is pretty interesting to tour the various working systems inside of you to get a better idea of how, let’s say, your nervous system works. I mean this isn’t going to be your ticket to an MD or anything and probably shouldn’t be used for self-diagnosing issues you are having (especially if you are a hypochondriac), it is pretty interesting to check out though.

    As with Anna Karina, we prefer to remember the U.S.A as she was in the 1960s.
