 Most definitely.

 In our Distributed Computing lab we're going to be obtaining a 4xR4.4k
Onyx with InfiniteReality graphics, and I've got an Indigo2 that I use as
my primary box that I intend to play with these on.

 Trick is how we're going to get it interacting with our non-SGI equipment
and other visualization devices (such as our tiled display wall):

 We've been looking into OpenDX for a while, glad to hear it may have
support for these.

 Aside from general visualization tools, any neat demos (molecules to spin
around, 3D space/flight simulators, etc.) that we can come up with can
help to impress those who otherwise wouldn't understand what is going on
(and may be in charge of spending money).
