Google, the Internet search engine, has developed a new browser that can map out the entire human body.

The hi-tech 3D application, called 'Google Body Browser', has been hailed as a breakthrough in the study of anatomy that could revolutionise people's understanding of the human body and fast-track medical research, reports the Daily Mail.

The gadget, yet to be officially released, lets you explore the human body in much the same way you can navigate the world on Google Earth.

The new browser also ushers in the introduction of brand new Internet technology called WebGL, that will allow complex 3D graphics to be used on normal web pages, without the need for specially adapted browser plug-ins like Flash or Java.

It is likely to be the perfect tool for those hypochondriacs who like to use Google to find out what is ailing them and who will get a gruesome thrill from analysing every last vein.

Until recently, Google has been tight-lipped about the application's development, but a new video appearing on the Internet provides a sneak peek at how the new tool will work.

In the video, the browser is used to dissect the human body and identify organs, bones and muscle groups.

The body can be turned, manipulated and stripped to the bare bones to show how its functions work and connect.

Ahead of its official unveiling, Google has released a version available on WebGL-supported browsers or beta versions of Firefox and Google Chrome, which can be downloaded from the Google Body Browser site.
