I'd say that he probably used Voroi++
http://math.lbl.gov/voro++/examples/

which from the download page, says that the output can be used in POV-Ray
http://math.lbl.gov/voro++/download/

What would be nice would be a way to shell out to Voroi++ to generate the data
for a scene and then render it.

I just don't know how to do that ([like many things] yet).
