Panaramic Web-cams

Panaramics are popping up all over the web. Apparently, they are created by taking a series of photos and then using a computer to merge them into one continuous photo. This is a pretty standard feature on your better digital cameras, although I'm not sure if they offer the 360 degree option. What I want to know is how much processing power is required to accomplish this? Can I set up a series of web-cams and then convert them into a live panaramic? I'd love to be able to watch a live video and have the ability to swivel the camera in any direction. How long until someone sets this up? [16:27]  [ ]
