Again from peripatetic curation of Things Magazine we find ourselves directed to what one might be forgiven for thinking was merely a fun, visual romp through the control panels (see previously) and user-interfaces of Lego playsets—which in itself is reason enough for indulging it—but the object lesson turns out to be highly illustrative of design ramifications that one could extrapolate to real-life engineering and remote-operations scenarios, not to mention the toy-manufacturer’s eye for such details. In common-parlance, we only talk of colour-coding but our panels encode for other relationships as well according to function and enhance (or sometimes detract from) the user experience (UX).
