Google "Earth" for the Human Body?!

Something for biology and health/wellness teachers to keep an eye on: Google is making a Google Earth tool for the human body. Not sure if it is available yet, but for now, I will direct you to Hack Education's blog entry about it. The blog has a video that shows Google Human Body ("Body Browser") in action. Looks pretty neat and makes looking at the human body in a textbook kind of boring and uninformative. This is another tool that makes me think how cool education could be if all students had a laptop or tablet to view the human body in an interactive and manipulative setting. So, if you teach these things, read this blog entry and watch the video....this tool is going to be very cool!
