they're weird, but yeah, they are pretty neat.  i'd guess they're some sort of futuristic, high-tech equivalent of a crystal ball.  what sort of material / texture / render settings did you use to get that effect?

Looks like like you used CHECKS, I remember in my early Anim8or days, when I just messed around with the tools, I used CHECKS as well
