More music! This is all over the interwebs today. I’ll quote the press release, because my tiny brain does not parse technology well:
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.
Watch the making-of video below to learn about how the video was made and the various technologies that were used to capture and render 3D data.
also: this screenshot is really pretty.
