True 3D Chess?

When i've encountered the screen capture of the not very famous 3D chess scene from the original Star Trek series, where Spock is deeply searching for a "logical move", i asked to myself why such variant has never been popular. Indeed, it could open a new dimension, the third one, in order to delay the rise of the perfect chess playing engines.
Some state perfect chess will need 4500 ELO. I didn't wanna calculate this and i'm fully relying on the info coming from colleagues who spent time for this.
What's certain about it, is that i will never dare to play such torturous game versus that kind of  engine.
