J&J Publishing: The QuickTime VR version
Here you see an example of a 360° Panoramic QuickTime Movie. Place your mouse within the movie, hold down the mouse button and scroll left and right, up and down. You can also zoom in and out using the buttons below the picture. You will notice the first time you spin completely around, the motion will seem jerky; the second spin is smoother due to the entire cylindrical picture now being stored in your computer's cache.
