Video interlude: Radiohead and lasers

Maybe Radiohead should change their name to something a little more futuristic — Laserhead, perhaps. For their new video “House of Cards,” the band decided to experiment with laser-scanning technology and make a video without using any cameras at all. Instead, they used 360-degree scanners that created what amount to 3D maps of the band and various actors in the video, as well as a much larger scanner that created a 3D image of an entire street. The parts where the data forming the image seems to disintegrate are very cool. Not crazy about the song though. Google has a whole page devoted to the creation of the video, and TechCrunch has some more info here.
