Basically you just take an environment map (spheremap, cubemap, whatever-map)... Then calc the reflection-vector per-vertex (or per-pixel if you like) from the vertex normal and the eye vector (something like R = I - (2 * I.N)*N), and use it to lookup in the environment map, et voila, instant reflections. Really simple, no?
