Ray tracing: a game-changing technology

Ray tracing: a game-changing technology
For any engineer worth their salt working with AR/VR/XR, product design or simulation, ray tracing is a technology with which they should become familiar. This is because it is one of the most significant advances in graphics since the beginning of 3D itself and it is about to move from the rarefied world of movies and advertising, into embedded categories like mobile, wearables and automotive as new, more efficient ways of processing ray tracing come to market. Kristof Beets, Senior Director Product Management, Imagination Technologies explains.
