Who invented ray tracing?

  title={Who invented ray tracing?},
  author={G. R. Hofmann},
  journal={The Visual Computer},
We provide some remarks on the very early developments of the visualization techniques conducted during the European Renaissance. It is shown that the basic principle of ray tracing was already presented by Albrecht Dürer (1471–1528) in 1525. This article is intended to be of common interest; it is not a scientific report. 
15 Years Later: A Historic Look Back at “Quake 3: Ray Traced”
This work describes how the project got to this point by taking a look back at one of the first fully ray traced games, “Quake 3: Ray Traced”, and provides insight into the development steps with unreleased internal details and images. Expand
Photorealism in Low-cost Virtual Reality Devices
This paper presents a novel framework that allows low-cost devices to visualize and interact with photorealistic scenes. To accomplish this task, we use the Unity streaming package that allows forExpand
Fast calculation method with saccade suppression for a computer-generated hologram based on Fresnel zone plate limitation.
A new method is proposed that uses saccades to reduce the amount of CGH calculation without any negative effects on observers viewing CGH reconstruction images. Expand
A survey of Shading Techniques for Facial Deformations on Sign Language Avatars
This work proposes using a simple, classic, Phong illumination model with a dynamically modified layered texture, which results in much quicker render times than more sophisticated, computationally intensive techniques. Expand
Ultraschall-Plattenwellen in komplexen Strukturen – Ein Minimalmodell
Die kontinuierliche Strukturuberwachung mit Lamb-Wellen ist ein vielversprechender Ansatz, der langfristig den Wechsel von einer zeit- zu einer zustandsbasierten Flugzeugwartung ermoglichen kann.Expand
