Radiohead Data Becomes a Head!

About a year ago, Radiohead released a great video of “House of Cards”, much of which was singer Thom Yorke’s face and head illuminated by teeny points of laser light. Very inventive, for certain, but they went a step further: Radiohead released CSV files the point cloud on Google Code for public access under a creative commons license.

It took a while, but recently Thingiverse user Serratiago used the data to print Thom Yorke’s head! We’re not quite sure what this means philosophically, when a music video becomes a physical object, but it’s something to ponder.

And it’s a great song, too.
