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 to learn about how the video was made and
the various technologies that were used to capture and render 3D data.

Explore data visualization through a 3D viewer and use your mouse to
further manipulate the data and create your own visualizations.

Download the data and instructions on how to create your own visualizations.

If you manage to create a data visualization that you'd wish to share,
the band would love to see it. You can share your videos on the House
of Cards YouTube group.
