    What will Google think of next? That’s the question I asked myself when I saw their latest release. They have taken people’s natural wonder of our anatomy, used the concept of Google earth and put them together to create this new software called Google Body. Interestingly, this doesn’t just work for the Human body, you can also explore and learn about the insides of many different creatures, and all from the comfort of your living room with your Droid or Tablet. The video above gives you a quick demo of how it works, and some of the cool features. I could actually see some private school, and maybe some colleges, taking advantage of this and implementing this into their programs.

    What do you think of this new innovation by Google? How might you see yourself using it in your life?

    I already had this on my cr-48, unfortunately it did not work and would in turn crash the computer. However, this will be huge for the medical field especially for me when I start "medic" school in the next year. I'm pretty excited! AND IT'S FREE. Thank you Google.

    I want this for my DX. Very fun. I've been trying to teach my daughter some basic anatomy, mostly skeletal, but its hard to show her from outside the body.

    Of course not. I meant medical field as in any student studying anything inside the medical field at some point could use this and it be very useful. Secondly, if I was a medic and needed to refer back to this, then I probably have no business being on the job and my license needs to be revoked.

    FF/EMT right here.

    wow this would be a great reference for educational purposes. An app/software like this would come in handy for my RN program that i'm in...professors are already pushing mobile devices (android specifically) to handle most of our books...hasn't really hit that mainstream point but with technology enabling tools like this, its only a matter of time until it does
