Radiohead releases new song on Video Made entirely with Scanners

Radiohead's new video for its song “House of Cards” from the album “In Rainbows” was made with....

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.

Watch the making-of the video to learn about how the video was made and the various technologies that were used to capture and render 3D data.
