Learn the same techniques memory champions use to do amazing mental feats, like memorizing a deck of shuffled cards in under 25 seconds, or tens of thousands of digits of pi.

Interactive tutorials guide you through the learning process and teach you how to apply them to practical, everyday things like remembering names, learning languages/vocabulary, studying for tests, preparing for meetings and interviews, and much more.

Click, drag, and drop to build and manage your knowledge through web-based memory journeys, also known as memory or mind palaces. Pre-built journeys on a variety of subjects, from the periodic table and history to anatomy and vocabulary, help you get started.

Train online with feedback and statistics for faster improvement. Compete against your friends with fun memory games, both with real information you are learning and memory competition events.

Parents can use this software to learn together with their kids in a way that is enjoyable for everyone. Language learners can memorize vocabulary more quickly. Teachers and tutors can build engaging study materials that make learning fun. The software can be used to learn just about anything, whether it’s beer styles, Scrabble words, business data, or poetry.

Background:
According to legend, a Greek poet named Simonides developed the memory palace technique over 2,500 years ago. More techniques were developed over the centuries and they were widely used in Europe through the Medieval and Renaissance periods. Together, these techniques are called the Art of Memory.
