Really cool use of visualization tools to create this music video for Radiohead's "House of Cards".
Radiohead just released a new video for its song "House of Cards" from the album "In Rainbows".
No cameras or lights were used. Instead two technologies were used to capture 3D images: Geometric Informatics and Velodyne LIDAR. 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.

This visualization, called code_swarm, shows the history of commits in a software project. A commit happens when a developer makes changes to the code or documents and transfers them into the central project repository. Both developers and files are represented as moving elements. When a developer commits a file, it lights up and flies towards that developer. Files are colored according to their purpose, such as whether they are source code or a document. If files or developers have not been active for a while, they will fade away. A histogram at the bottom keeps a reminder of what has come before.Thanks Alwyn for sending in the link!

Alisa Miller, head of Public Radio International, talks about why -- though we want to know more about the world than ever -- the US news media is actually showing less. She uses WorldMapper to communicate her point about the state of today's news in the US.
Why not? One more infographic video Sprint ad for weekend. This features Sprint's relationship with AAA to help stranded motorists.
What to do when you are stranded in the woods with the eminent danger of a bear just around the corner? Just use your Sprint Nextel phone to call for help. Superfad brought this case study and others to life. Watch how real people use the Sprint Nextel Direct Connect system to get the job done right.Found on See What You Mean, an infographic blog I just learned about. Thanks Richard!
What if the only things you could see in the world around you were brands and advertising? No walls, no people, no sidewalks...just ads. Apparently it would be more than enough to get around in the world.
This is an awesome video! Thanks to pascal for submitting the link in the comments to an earlier video post: See The World in Words
This is a great way to visualize gas emissions which are normally invisible. That's why most people don't have any real sense how much is produced by the things you do in everyday life like running your washing machine or refrigerator.
The black balloons really work, with the black color implying "bad" and they're actually filled with a lighter than air gas that rises into the atmosphere. I'm assuming that the size of the balloons actually represents the 50 grams of greenhouse gas discussed in the ad.
