Any of you see Hollow Man? Well, the guys who did the special effects there have teamed up with Google to create a fully interactive, layered 3D model of the human body – and it looks awesome.
Sure, it’s a little blocky here and there but it’s a great tool for explaining simple pathology or procedures to patients, or even if you’re revising some anatomy yourself. Having this on a tablet on the wardround creates a whole new future of medicine. If you’ve got a Xoom or Samsung Tab (or any Honeycomb tablet – us Gingerbreaders don’t get the love), then you can check out the app here.
For a first version, it’s pretty good – but you know Google, they’re going to bring out a massive stack of updates if this thing takes off, not unlike what happened with Google Earth.
