Automoblox & Reverse Engineering
Transcript of Automoblox & Reverse Engineering
Visual Design Principles & Elements Identification
Justin Vorthmann, & Marisa Manocchio
Dream. Build. Drive- Each Automoblox kit uses the same connector pieces so kids can imagine their own designs for cars, mismatch the pieces, build it, and play.
The wheels and axle pins:
The axle has a smaller diameter but towards the outer edge it has a bigger diameter which 'clips' or 'hooks' onto a circular edge on the inside of the axle insert hole on the wheel.
The car has a connector piece that is removable and two that are not. The removable piece has two sides to it that fit exactly into the non-removable pieces. This allows two sections of the car to connect together.
There is also a raised ridge patter on the top and bottom of the removable connector piece, that when pinched by kids the piece releases and comes free from the other non-removable connector.
Everything is interchangeable between any vehicle. The people even have different bases to fit into the car so that they can move between models. The removable connector pieces are the same so that they can also go between models and sections of the car.
Link pieces to create
vehicle that moves.

The Wheel and Tire
The texture of the wood grain in this rear view indicates that the truck is made of real wood and not simply colored to look like wood. The camera flash off of the wood gives the impression that it is finished with a glossy stain. All cuts and holes are very smooth with no splinters. The variation of the flash reflection points to the fact that the rear surface is not a single plane but has varying depth. Again, the truck is symmetrical about the long axis including the “A” logo on the rear surface. The logo matches the logo on the tires. The tires appear to be a different substance from the windshield as they are opaque and nonreflective.
This top view of the Automoblox truck shows that it is made with parts that are bright green and wood toned. The reflection of the camera flash shows that the windshield is partially reflective. The fact that you can see the people inside indicates that the windshield is partially transparent, probably plastic. The truck is symmetric about the long axis with the possible exception of the people inside. The windshield is a trapezoid with the smaller dimension in front. The tires are covered with a textured pattern. The truck body appears to be made of three parts which indicates the ability to be taken apart. The edges of the truck body and the windshield are rounded.
The side view shows a groove that runs along the side of the truck adding texture and visual appeal. The side view shows that the windshield has a rounded triangle shape sloping from back to front. The wheels are silver in color and have round radial balance which mimics the rounded edges throughout the remainder of the truck. The front wheels are very close to the front of the truck and the eye is drawn to them because of the dissimilarity compared to real vehicles. The axles appear to be of a different shade of green than the tires and the windshield.
In addition to previously mentioned features, the front view again demonstrates the symmetry about the long axis of the truck. There are several different slopes, angles, and arcs giving the truck additional form and depth.
