A Developer Got Ray Tracing Working on the Playdate Handheld

The handheld device also managed to show Nolan's Tenet.

Since Panic's handheld Playdate's release in April, many enthusiasts have started experimenting with it. One of them got ray tracing working on the device. Lionel Lemarié said it works almost in real-time on the simulator, but on the real device, rendering takes about 30 minutes per frame.

Later, the developer managed to reduce the time to 3 minutes per frame.

Another user found a way to watch videos and even movies on the small device. jae watched Christopher Nolan's Tenet 'the way it was intended,' with Playdate's crank fast-forwarding the footage.

In case you missed it, Panic made Playdate's SDK public at the beginning of March.
