Informal term for a bald person's head, or C-3P0's. This is in reference to the fact that a slightly sweaty bald person's head may exhibit many properties of a chrome sphere. Namely, a proper chrome dome should have a specular highlight in direct light, and a light color, and a round shape.

Chrome domes in the media

Homer Simpson buffed his head to new heights of chrome domitude in a bowling ball buffer and it not only has a specular highlight, it reflected everything around him as well.

Michael Jordan would not be eligible for characterization as a chrome dome because his skin is too dark.

Dr. Evil could be considered to have a chrome dome. Even though his head is pretty matte, (because it's prosthetic, of course) he raises baldness to a new level.
