Realtime raytracing with OpenCL I


As my university's exams are going, I had been busy working on various course projects.
This semester I took a Raytracing course. That's something I've been playing with some time ago, and I thought I could get some credits without paying much attention (which is important due to my lack of time and motivation to go to lectures :D...

I want to outline why I’m programming games and why I’m starting this blog (as I never maintained one).

During the past 5 years, I’ve created several games, mostly uninspired arcade clones.
While probably the people who played these games,...
