New Radiohead Video at Google | Download and Remix It

Radiohead - House of Cards

Radiohead just released a new video for its song “House of Cards” from the album “In Rainbows”.

No cameras or lights were used. Instead two technologies were used to capture 3D images: Geometric Informatics and Velodyne LIDAR. Geometric Informatics scanning systems produce structured light to capture 3D images at close proximity, while a Velodyne Lidar system that uses multiple lasers is used to capture large environments such as landscapes. In this video, 64 lasers rotating and shooting in a 360 degree radius 900 times per minute produced all the exterior scenes. []

If you’re so inclined, you can download the data used to make this video and remix it to make your own custom visualization. (This visualization viewer is also pretty nifty.)
