An endless-video recording digicam?

Does this device exist, and if not, how can I modify cheap consumer digicams to create it: A cheap portable digicam that will endlessly record video to some kind of small memory buffer, say enough memory for 1 minute of video, such that I could leave it running for days on the off-chance of it recording something interesting, and when something interesting happened, I just press a "Stop Recording" button, and the last 60 seconds of video are sitting in memory.

Looking for a wireless security camera system.

I need a wireless security camera system. My requirements are that it be able to support at least 8 cameras, be reasonably high-res, and be able to capture and record streams digitally (not just take still snapshots). Motion sensitive activation is a plus, but not required. Ability to view the streams using a standard web browser is a big plus, but not necessarily required.

Budget is flexible, but I'd like to spend less than $5K total if possible. If that's not realistic (high or low), say so.
