It's a simple Java applet where the whole picture is drawn onto the canvas and constantly is shifted left/right to give that 3D appearance. I know how to make such an applet from scratch, but I don't know if there are any tools or sites that perform this service automatically for you.

Although you can make a similar effect with java or flash, I am pretty sure that particular effect is done with a product called
Egg Photo 360 (http://www.eggsolution.com/eggphoto360/EN/index.htm) It is an add on lens for digital cameras. You can purchase the lens and software kit from egg solutions. If you take a look at their site you will notice that the samples (http://www.eggsolution.com/eggphoto360/EN/GalEvents.htm) are very similar to the "panos" on the site you provided.

Thanks. I checked and its a bit different from egg photo. The Bo lorentzen ones are completely spherical and allow views directly below and above which make them so amazing. I think the author did his with a nikon fish eye lens and a special lens bracket.
