  Why bloat R with something like that? All we need is a way of linking 
R with Blender and we have a fully-GPL statistics and 3-d rendering 
facility. Blender is scriptable in python, so you could read data files 
from Blender, or possibly one could write an R graphics device that 
produced Blender-compatible data files. Blender

  Eventually you'll be able to walk through your data in 3-d....
