About 3-D graphics

Hi BeagleBoard,

I was on IRC earlier today but I had a few more questions.

1.) If I were to do the 3-D graphics rendering, would my work be
intertwined with another work, or would I have a bigger project on my
own

2.) I am actually trying to create a engine with erlang to use to
mathematical approach to a video game i am creating with a friend over
the summer, I have been wanting to use it as a multithreader for quite
some time now this project would give an opportunity to try that out.
Now the question I had, how would I get a hold of BeagleBoard
processors to be able to compare the differences and possibly the
advantages?
