[R] Is there a way to draw 3d plot?

There is also the rotate.persp function in the TeachingDemos package.
It creates a set of slider bars that you can move with the mouse to
change the different options to persp including the angles. It is not
quite as convenient as clicking in the plot and dragging like rgl
allows, but it does have the advantage that when you have the plot you
like, you can see what the current settings are and recreate the same
plot using persp and those settings rather than having to remember how
you rotated the graph interactively (you can query the current rotation
in rgl as well and set it by command in future plots).

But a glance at "rgl" seems requireing "shape", etc... and very
complicated...
Any easier approaches?
"persp" does not allow me to use mouse to rotate....
