The images are from the article “Columbia Object Image Library (COIL-100),” by S. A. Nene, S. K. Nayar and H. Murase, (Technical Report CUCS-006-96, February 1996.)
The COIL-100 is a database of 7200 color images of the above 100 objects. Each object was fotographed in 72 different positions, by rotating the above black plate.
The database can be downloaded via ftp from the Columbia University server at: this link.

The collection/database was used in a realtime 100 object recognition system.
I.e. it was made in order to teach a computer to recognize/distinguish the above well chosen ;-) hundred objects. From the intro in the article:” The objects have a wide variety of complex geometric and reflectance characteristics.”
