Radiohead seems to be living several years ahead of everyone else on planet Earth. First they give away their album, then they put on a free concert and now they release a music video made with no cameras or lights. The video was made only with data.
Radiohead used Geometric Informatics and Velodyne Lidar technology which is basically 3D scanning or motion capture. The system involves the use of 64 rotating lasers. It is complex and innovative, resulting in a very interesting effect.
In their YouTube channel you can find the "Behind the scenes" footage which explains how this piece of art was inspired and made.
The amazing and interesting use of technology this band is applying to their songs, videos and tours can be tested in this Google Code link: http://code.google.com/creative/radiohead/viewer.html
