Well, I guess you refer to OpenCL. But OpenCL (a C like language for 
doing numerical computation) has no relation to OpenGL (the most common 
API for 3D graphics).

I think 3D is very interesting and I'd love to see more activity on it. 
Your idea sonds neat! But I can't really help you. I never did 3D, and I 
can't really start studying a new field right now.

I suggest taking a good look at https://github.com/pbella/Cuis-OpenGL 
and https://github.com/len/RayTracer . Phil, Luciano, any comment on 
Casey's project?
