More than 1 camera images stitched together in a post pogram (after effects perhaps?) would be my best bet. Like a 4 way camera rig all on wide angle lenses.

You could probably get it with a 3 camera rig using fish-eyes or potentially even a super-wide (although that might require 4 cameras) - possibly using an hdslr or perhaps using some smaller hd cameras with wide-angle attachments, I think with 3-4 hdslr's the rig would start to get heavy (still workable) and you'd be shooting with a bit of a nodal offset (again still very workable). It wouldn't be very hard to come up with a rig similar to...

As for post... you could probably do a stitch on the first frame on each shot and then use those stitch settings for each frame - that potentially avoids any problems where the computed stitch varies from frame to frame.

You could also batch process the entire process using... http://www.ptgui.com/

Looks to me like the camera was pointed at a sphere, then the video was "straightened out" in post. I use a similar technique to do spherical reflections in lightwave
