The New Radiohead Video Was Shot With Laser Beams

Radiohead has done it again. The band’s brand new music video for the dreamy In Rainbows cut "House of Cards" doesn't make use of a single camera!

The "House of Cards" clip utilizes two state-of-the-art fancy-pants hyperoptic multimedia technologies known as Geometric Informatics and Velodyne Lidar. Here's a dorky explanation...

"The Geometric Informatics scanning system employs structured light to capture detailed 3D images at close proximity, and was used to render the performances of Radiohead's Thom Yorke, the female lead, and several partygoers. The Velodyne Lidar system uses multiple lasers to capture large environments in 3D, in this case 64 lasers rotating and shooting in a 360 degree radius 900 times per minute, capturing all of the exterior scenes and wide party shots."


I have no idea what the hell that means, but it does look pretty freakin’ sweet. Thom Yorke had some deeper thoughts about it…

"I liked the idea of making a video of human beings and real life and time without using any cameras, just lasers, so there are just mathematical points -- and how strangely emotional it ended up being."

The video itself isn’t that easy on the eyes, but it’s definitely great that Radiohead is always willing to take a chance on every single one of their music videos. Peep it…
