the new music video for Radiohead's song "House Of Cards", of which the images were generated without cameras or film, but with 3 different real-time 3D laser scanners that are normally used to capture geometrical terrains & objects. several low-tech approaches were used to deliberately "break up" the data. anyone is invited to & upload the original data & then post the visual results.

be sure not to miss the "Making of" video after the break.

we did some mixed reality experiments with the 3d data on an iphone and the LP cover:
