There's some great controversy stirred up over on Vimeo about whether this is fake or not. Regardless of whether it's legitimate science or great science fiction, this video is another beautifully clear example of how we are moving towards an object-oriented image making paradigm.

This subtle and elegant dance performance from United Visual Artists uses some type of volumetric recording technique to generate a real-time object-oriented video backdrop. It's not surprising that the data points are being displayed in a similar aesthetic to the House of Cards video which I love talking about so much; photo-realistic data sets would be a burdensome load for a real-time or even non-real-time process.
Anyone have a prediction on how soon we'll see photo-realistic real-time volumetrics? Let's start a wager! ;)
Thanks to my friend and colleague Carsten Goertz for the link to the video!

These technologies will simultaneously help increase the demand for volumetric cinematography while being made obsolete by its widespread arrival.
