Manipulate Radiohead’s Laser-Made Music Video in Real Time

The folks from RadioHead just released a new video for their latest song “House of Cards.” The thing that makes this video so special is that no cameras or lights we used to film it. Instead, the producing team used two 3D technologies to capture motion and 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.

Check out the video below, and once you’re done, hit this link to manipulate the video’s data in real time.
