Wow, I don't know which I like better, the song by Radiohead, or this trippy new video that is so fluid and just right for the song. Apparently no cameras were used for "House of Cards". Instead, 3D plotting technologies collected information about the shapes and relative distances of objects. The video was created entirely with visualizations of that data:
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.
"House of Cards" by Radiohead
Directed by James Frost
From the album IN RAINBOWS
