I've seen some crazy impressive photos that were created from this method.  I'm baffled at how much you can zoom into these shots and the level of detail. 

Aside from a computerized gigapan head of some sort and a huge computer to process these files when processing, is there anything else that is needed?

Else than the Pro model, proper RAM, and dedicated stitching
software? Nope, you'd be ready to muscle up the tasks. :P

Thought so.  Awesome.   Now out of curiosity, any idea what is Photoshops limits on stitching shots together?  Can you put hundreds of shots in there for it to splice together?  I know it does it, but not a clue how many shots you can load into there.

I haven't use Adobe products since years but I know Ps has
accessory utility in stitching.

Personally, I use the Dutch made dedicated PTGui Pro

ADDENDUM

I had corporate projects that required 4 rows and 60 columns
for a total of 240 files and it all went fine. There is no known
upper limit to processing files in PTGui.

I'm sorry, but what is the purpose of these sort of images?  

You can open appreciate them by clicking on the image on selected sites, and view there.  You can't appreciate elsewhere?  

Seems like a lot of work for little reward.  Sorry to be negative, I'm just trying to understand what's the 'win' with these sort of images?

If you have no end product than web viewing, I can understand
you but think in terms of corporate cyclorama… makes sense.
