Dr. Seuss's lesser known book, "Oh the Things You'll Belt Sand".
Turning the bone and antler into dust must have been an interesting smell.
Different clipping planes!
Is there a way to make it easy to embed videos in comments? Every time I try it's a moving target, with YouTube or whatever having changed the proper incantation in some subtle way.
Very cool. Back in the early 90s, I worked for an "edutainment" CDROM/game company. We had a product called "3D Body Adventure", which used images from the Visible Human Project. We had an interface that let you scrub the mouse back and forth to move up and down through the layers of the body. I had always thought the "slices" were done by something like a band saw, but Wikipedia claims it was abrasive, just like this video. Wikipedia also claims there were only two subjects, male and female, but I thought there were image sets sliced in multiple directions, which wouldn't have been possible from a single subject.

Once you reconstruct the 3D data from slices in one dimension, you can do oblique slices and even curved slices with software.
As I recall, one of these projects used a prisoner on death row whose wish was to be sliced up FOR SCIENCE!
