Even beyond the great music, Radiohead’s latest video “House of Cards” is simply amazing. And that for two reasons:
100% data-driven visuals. The entire music video was produced without the use of a camera. Instead, three kinds of (near- and far-range) laser scanners were used to capture the artists and several environments. That’s just great fun from an engineering standpoint.
All data and code are open source. Not only are both the raw data AND the processing code freely available on Google Code, fans (at least the tech-savvy kind) are encouraged to remix the data and make their own visualizations.
