Golden Shears: shearing sheep with a bar-code scanner

"In the Present Zone, you can experience virtual bungy jumping, the Magic Lilo (floating over New Zealand), virtual sheep shearing (Golden Shears), virtual dragon boating (Dragon Boat Champs), the Whale Ride, virtual windsurfing (Wave Jumper), and virtual waterskiing (Ski Karapiro)."

(Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa)

[An intriguing aspect of Te Papa's (Museum of New Zealand, Wellington) exhibits is their use of theme–park–like attractions. While more traditional museums tend to show exhibits that are commonly understood to have cultural significance, Te Papa appears to flaunt this expectation by presenting both 'low' and 'high' culture exhibits.The Golden Shears exhibit allows visitors to 'virtually shear' a stuffed sheep doll covered in bar–code labels. Visitors move a bar–code scanner of the labels to shear the sheep's fleece. Multiple passes of the same area cause the sheep to be 'cut', reducing the shearer's total game score.]
