Radiohead produced a cool new video for their House of Cards song from the In Rainbows album using no video cameras.
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.
Google is totally excited about this and published the video and background information on how the video was made here. Via the official Google blog.
