Okay, I am a web designer and my next project is to make an interactive desktop for a company. My idea is to have a chrome gadget that you can use to view the information.

I want it to basically look like a chrome PDA, I've created a photoshop version of my gadget which you can see below but would like to build it in Lightwave so that I can animate in 3D.

So I really need tips on how to make realistic chrome surfacing, and I don't just mean upping the reflection and using a refelction map, i really want this to look photorealistic.

So can anyone give me any tips on how to do this?

peace
