I saw this article and made think…   I wonder what would be involved in incorporating the API into BRL-CAD since BRL-CAD is based on ray tracing…

Article about Graphics Card for real time ray tracing:

Website for API

I'll be honest, I don't fully understand the implications for BRL-CAD, but I thought it was interesting and was curious to hear someone with more knowledge provide some insight.
