Not sure how long its been around,

Microsoft has publicly released Photosynth, a way of combining conventional images to create 3D scenes. After you upload a set of images, the software analyzes each for similarities to the others, and then it uses this data to build a model of where the photos were taken. A viewer can then browse through the final photograph, navigating smoothly and zooming in tiny details.

I don't have the hours needed to d/l and view this type of content from the web, but it sounds very similar to Ulead Cool 3d and/or Cool 360.

I have done some 360 degree panoramas with Cool 360, which also lets you embed the viewer with the file, so a CD will play on any computer. I imagine it would also work for reverse panos as well.

Someday, maybe, I'll have broadband available.
