Ibis comment and those structures remind me of a british(I think) series during the eighties I saw where there was some three legged hovering ufos (i thing,again) and the people got a triangular plate mounted on their head for some reason.Don´t know what it´s called though.Just a thought http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

If you look closely you can see Screaming Lord Such at one of the windows.

Those things have been the setting for a couple of movies and IIRC some Doctor Who episodes.
