Has anyone tried this? Has anyone seen it before. Simply amazing technology. Just unbelievable really to me honestly. Some of the photos I've seen are so impressive and the zoom capability from miles away. Wow. I would like to know more about it.

Yes Darrel.
It's great fun. I see you have a 6D and a 100-400 so your fairly well kitted although I tend to use primes just for that extra sharpness and peace of mind that theres no zoom to creep.
Most important you'll need a good location ideally with loads of detail going on and contrasting colours. This helps the stitching software. A quality tripod, A head with click stops is a benefit but not essential, A proper pan head that corrects the nodal point axis is required for close pans like indoors and street view, but not critical for long view scenes like cityscapes from a high place.
You will need to take rows of images left to right with 20 to 30 percent horizontal overlap and the same vertical overlap between rows.
Purists will say stick to manual exposure after assessing the whole scene. I'm usually good with Aperture priority around F8 or more to get a good depth of field. Most software will adjust for the odd stop between frames. Images taken at different F stops will not stitch properly so keep away from Program or Auto. Shoot your images as quickly as you can but not sacrifcing accuracy and beware of passing clouds that can influence exposure too much. Start with a single row of 4-5 images just to get the hang of it and build up from there. My preferred stitching software is Panorama Studio. This can output your work to a web page that you can view locally or upload. It also renders to a JPG or a screensaver or exe file. There are free programs out there like Hugin or Microsoft Image Composite Editor which is easy to use and spits out some good results. These are just a few tips and there's lots more to learn along the way. Get out and have a go. Enjoy.

Notice in this close pan how the two people with the push chair appear twice. This can happen easily with people moving in the same direction as you are panning, something to watch out for

My boss at a Camera store I worked for, told me his school graduating had a panographic camera , the kind where you would see Army troops, circus stuff trains, etc. He and a couple of his friends would get their faces shot at one end then run and pose at the other end. So there would be twins.
