Radiohead & Google Open Source Laser-Generated Video For House Of Cards

Jul 14th, 2008 | By | Category: Internet TV, Video

Radiohead and Google have partnered on a new project that is a very cool example of using cutting-edge video technology, social media and an open source approach to promoting music.

Radiohead’s latest video, for House of Cards, was created without cameras or lights. Instead, 3D plotting technologies collected information about the shapes and relative distances of objects.

The video was created entirely with visualizations of that data.

Even cooler, Radiohead is open sourcing the project, releasing the video data as a remixing challenge. This means that anybody can revisualize the data, or even use it to create some bizarrely creative mashups.

Radiohead has also created a group on YouTube for sharing remixes of the House of Cards video data.
