Cool:Where the Hell Is Matt?

Just thought you guys might find this interesting. This dude, Matt Harding, traveled around 42 countries within the past 14 months and… well, danced. It’s just simply amazing. This is actually Matt’s 3rd time doing this. The first time was all self-financed by himself. When the people of Stride gum discovered his interesting viral video, they offered to sponsor him if he traveled around the world again to make another video. Matt liked the idea and the second video was born. The video below is his third and most recent.

To watch the video in HD, go ahead and click here. Go ahead and check out Matt’s site, Where the Hell Is Matt?, if you want to learn everything there is to him and his videos.

Open Source video clip Radiohead "House of Cards"

Jakarta, detik - Semangat Open Source adalah kreativitas dan inovasi, bukan partisan atau fanatisme buta. Hal itu juga yang diusung grup musik Radiohead dalam video klip terbaru mereka yang dibuat dengan semangat Open Source.

Video klip tersebut dibuat tanpa menggunakan kamera. Seluruh imaji yang muncul adalah rekaan tiga dimensi yang disusun murni dari data.

Seperti dikutip detikINET dari Tech Crunch, Rabu (16/7/2008), Google menjadi rekanan grup musik tersebut dalam mempromosikan lagu 'House of Cards' dari album In Rainbows. Google menyediakan aplikasi interaktif video tersebut beserta kode penyusunnya pada situs

Video 'House of Cards' dibuat tanpa menggunakan kamera. Video itu menggunakan data dari scanner Geometrics Informatics untuk menangkap citra tiga dimensi para musisi. Sedangkan untuk pemandangan kota, digunakan pemindai Velodyne LIDAR.

Google disebut menggunakan teknologi yang mirip dengan yang diterapkan pada Velodyne LIDAR. Bedanya, Google menggunakan teknologi itu untuk menghasilkan pemandangan dalam aplikasi Street View pada Google Maps.

Sesuai semangat Open Source, Radiohead pun membuka data yang digunakan dalam video ini. Harapannya, para pengembang piranti lunak bisa membuat variasi mereka terhadap video klip tersebut.

Di halaman tersedia aplikasi berbasis Flash yang bisa digunakan untuk melihat dan berinteraksi dengan elemen dalam video klip itu. Video klip 'House of Cards' disutradarai oleh James Frost, sedangkan teknologinya ditangani Aaron Koblin.

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.

Watch the making-of video to learn about how the video was made and the various technologies that were used to capture and render 3D data.
