Inexpensive (well, relatively) Panoramic Video

Nice notes on building a panoramic video system.  It hooks six firewire webcams together to record full motion video over 360 degrees.    Neat!

Warning! Do not proceed if you are a complete idiot!

So I opened that and put the small hose I had purchased specially for the job into the DVD drive as far as it would go. With what I can only describe as great excitement and anticipation, I turned on the water.
