Millennium Dome, Jan-Dec 2000:

"The Mind Zone does contain the best bit of the entire dome: the Neural Net Starfish.
A-larger-than-life, gold, 3-D starfish has been somehow incorporated into a marble table top.
It is incredibly lifelike and responds to human contact by retracting disdainfully
or stretching out a tentacle in friendship when a hand approaches"
