House of Cards

I couldn't resist sharing this.

Follow this link to access the interactive clip. 
Worth checking out!

For their new release Radiohead are bringing us into the future of entertainment. "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.".

It makes me feel as though we aren't too far from realistic, interactive, 3D videos which can be projected and enjoyed in the comfort of our homes.  I suppose once SMD release one of these people will really start thinking of the opportunities at hand.

All the technical stuff is explained here, complete with an explanation of how to further manipulate the video.

ps. youtube is rubbish, use vimeo
