2,500 years ago, a Greek poet named Simonides invented the memory palace to remember and recall vast amounts of information. New techniques were developed over the centuries and they were widely used throughout the ancient, medieval and renaissance periods.
Together, they are known as the Art of Memory.
These powerful techniques allow people with average memories to do amazing feats, like memorizing the order of a shuffled deck of cards in less than 20 seconds and recalling tens of thousands of digits of pi.
And the best part is that anyone can learn them!
Art of Memory software teaches you the same techniques used by the world's best memorizers and shows you how to apply them to everyday learning.
Interactive tutorials teach you the same techniques used by memory champions.
Create, build, and customize memory palaces that store information you want to learn.
Training feedback and statistics help you improve quickly.
Play against your friends in fun memory games.
Compete against the world's top memory athletes on Memory League.
Using memory techniques is a fun way to exercise your brain and learn at the same. Traditional brain training websites offer simple video games endorsed by neuroscientists where the only benefit you can see is a higher score.
Our memory software, games, and challenges lead to quantifiable learning and concrete results you can see for yourself -- no complex algorithm or feedback from neuroscientists is required to explain how your ability to memorize is improving!
Our software walks you through all of the memory techniques and makes the learning process easy.
Our team has expertise in both memory techniques and building memory-related software. We have nine national memory titles combined. Our Art of Memory forum is the largest online community for memory techniques with over 12,000 members. We also created the software for the Extreme Memory Tournament (XMT), a digital memory competition in which the world's best memorizers compete for $75,000 in prize money.
