Err, OpenGL had it like 10 years ago.  IrisGL longer.

I saw them demo'ing it at MMVR 2 years ago.  They had volumetric
rendering of the visible human male data set being performed on an Onyx
3x00 and displayed over 802.11b (at least I think it was b) on a WinCE
hand held.

I kinda thought that their OpenGL Viserver was Irix only though.
