This is the official repository of code for Radiohead's House of Cards (2008) music video.

You can check out the interactive viewer on Aaron Koblin's website. You can also visit the project's old homepage on the Internet Archive.

On this site, you'll find three files:

  • CSV point cloud data of Thom Yorke singing "House of Cards" (Part 1)
  • CSV point cloud data of Thom Yorke singing "House of Cards" (Part 2)
  • Processing source code and Lidar scan data from "House of Cards."

Download and have fun.

To read about the making of House of Cards, check out "Building Radiohead's House of Cards" by Aaron Koblin with Valdean Klump in Beautiful Data, ed Tony Segaran and Jeff Hammerbacher.

Please note: the code and data were released in 2008 and will not be updated. This repo acts purely as an archive.
