IntroductionSol-R is a CUDA/OpenCL-based realtime ray-tracer compatible with Oculus Rift DK1, Kinect, Razor Hydra and Leap Motion devices. Most of the code was written at night and during week-ends, meaning that it's probably not the best quality ever ;-)The idea was to produce a Ray-Tracer that has its own "personality". Most of the code does not rely on any litterature about ray-tracing, but more on a naive approach of what rays could be used for. The idea was not to produce a physically based ray-tracer, but a simple engine that could produce cool images interactively. Sol-R is a lot of fun to play with if you like coding computer generated images.
