I figure the closest you'll get without reinventing the wheel could be http://billwscott.com/carousel/carousel_ajax_load.html. The component is available and documented at http://billwscott.com/carousel/.

Or if you'd prefer 3d, you could build on http://www.hotajax.org/content/view/491/420/.

Happy hacking!
