Radiohead video for its song “House of Cards”
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.
Director of Technology – House of Card’s Music video, interactive data viewer, and source code.
With Director James Frost and a bunch of other great people, lasers and sensors were used to create a 3D data “music video” for the band Radiohead.
The project was launched as an Open Source project on Google Code.
An interactive online viewer (created along with Aaron Meyers) allows for 3D investigation of the data online.
