Fooling around in Houdini with the intersect VOP today, made a little raytracer inside SOPs. I'm sure its not the first time somebody's done this but was a bit of fun while passing time.

It's tracing rays from each grid point, doing (soft) shadowed diffuse lighting from a point light, with an optional specular reflection layer with fake fresnel blending.
