Looking at the Khoros commercial site (now AccuSoft), it looks like a
more polished version of OpenDX (which also offers a visual programming
system). See http://www.opendx.org/index2.php 

The problem with OpenDX is the cr*ppy Motif-based GUI (particularly so
if you use Windows). I prefer VTK (www.vtk.org) which offers similar
concepts (pipeline execution of data filtering/visualisation blocks) but
in a programmatic form based on python (which we like...).
