Live 3D Scanning

The latest Radiohead music video was ‘filmed’ without a camera.

Rotating laser scanners capable of panoramic ‘countryside’ scanning or detailed facial expressions were used.  The final output still looks quite crude but it’s very interesting technology. 

One thought is that if the image is captures digitally then mapped to create the visual then I don’t think it’s hard to imagine a ‘photoshop’ application in the middle of that process – making video an even more unreliable medium.
