The ruby-vtk works with VTK-4.4 but not VTK-5.0+
Simple ruby programs work, but those that require interactive use
 - similar to Python's TkIntermodule were not working.
They would require some ruby code to implement that module.

Even with that ruby-vtk, it is an alpha quality.
There is no .gem package yet.
The tar.gz was as easy as reading the instructions in that package.

To get a ruby interface for VTK-5.0 would require implementing a swig
interface.
That is quite a lot of work to get that implemented.
