General Unix

Modern microcontrollers are becoming quite beefy. The Microchip PIC32 line is actually an implementation of the MIPS32 4K architecture - and with 512K of flash and 128K of RAM you can even run Unix! RetroBSD is a port of BSD 2.11 for the PIC32. You might not be able to run X11, but it is still very useful and a great reminder of how small Unix used to be - and how far it has come.

Ray tracing? What would the output be presented on?


Well, the output could just be relayed to a device with an actual display with the microcontrollers just handling the actual calculations. I do not see what the problem is.
