Radiohead: 'House of Cards' music video created using Geometric Informatics and LIDAR

"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."


[In the search for new ways of 'telling the same story' Radiohead have managed to provide the necessary spectacle through their redeployment of surveying technology in their 'House of Cards' music video.]
