Freebee Friday: Inside Man (and Woman)

BiodigitalA great way to augment a biology lesson on human anatomy, BioDigital Human has a virtual 3-D animated person that students can explore inside and out, without spilling a drop of blood or the smell of formaldehyde. You can choose between exploring a man or woman, see the entire body or isolate any organ. To simplify things, you can turn on and off various details, like digestion, circulation and lymph. There are explanations as well as a handy interface that lets you zoom in and out or see the body with an X-ray view. The downside is that it’s still a beta Web service and requires OpenGL graphics, so it might need an update of your video drivers.
