umm, they might be really fancy paper stands. You know like what people put their music on in concerts and stuff.

Maybe he didn't want to use them. Or maybe they like shine the spotlights on those, and they evenly disperse the light. So it wont make the speaker look washed out from all of the lights

I would guess it has lines of his speech on it, because they don't look like protection against bullets. I'm sure he memorizes his speech, but they are probably for reference if he forgets.

They are digital speech viewers, much like your 'paper stands'. On the bottom, where the black box part is, is a LCD screen which has the speech displayed on it, the 'glass' part on the top reflects the LCD screen making the glass readable, much like a paper stand.

^ You live in January 2001 man

the only cool eyecandy science fiction tech we hadn't have yet are making cool particle effects of laser guns. I mean we have 3D holography (accurately called volumetric display) sleek LCD screens virtual reality portable everythings and laser guns. If you are talking about teleportation though they have successfully refined the Prius.
