Anyone who remembers the TV series Scrapheap Challenge from its early noughties heyday will know all about the disconnect between the planning and the execution stage of a hasty construction project.
Like a real life version of The A-Team, two teams would have to build a fantastic contraption out of assorted scrap parts in order to carry out a specific task.
When it worked it was brilliant stuff, but too often the final practical application of these contraptions failed to live up to expectations.
It's a fitting illustration for Rigonauts.
