Radiohead video is pretty sweet

The video for “House of Cards” relatively long in the works is finally up, and its pretty damn cool.  The video uses no cameras whatsoever, only a technology that maps geometric shapes called Geometric Informatics. 

“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.”

Pretty cool stuff.  There is some fan component, though I don’t see how fans can make a video like this.  But it’s all on this google video page. Be sure to play with the data by clicking on the picture at the bottom, its pretty fun.
