  This would be theoretically possible, although not that easy, with the rgl package. But ... this goes in the category of "do you *really* want to do this?" The graph you show may be aesthetically pleasing, but both the perspective and the obscuring of the rearmost data categories make it much harder to see what's going on. If you really want to do this, I would export the data from R as a csv file and use Excel ... (easier than getting rgl to do it)
