Radiohead – House of Cards

The Official Google Blog on the making of Radiohead’s latest music video; House of Cards:

In this new video, there were no cameras on set. Instead, two scanning technologies were used to capture 3D images. Geometric Informatics scanning systems produced structured light to capture 3D images at close proximity, while a Velodyne LIDAR system that uses multiple lasers was used to capture large environments such as landscapes. In the video, 64 lasers rotating and shooting in a 360 degree radius 900 times per minute produced all the exterior scenes.

The video and a making of documentary can be found on the video’s homepage:
