This subject came up in one of the pilot workshops organised by the Royal Society. I got inspired by this and ‘Collaboration’, subject proposed by the Royal Society team. I wanted to make an object that would choose a team randomly, and in a way that the person using such object couldn't choose the members of the team. I added professions related to science, humanities craftsmanship, and professions that are
