NeverMind: Using AR for memorization

Oscar Rosello

NeverMind is an interface and application designed to support human memory. We combine the memory palace memorization method with augmented reality technology to create a tool to help anyone memorize more effectively. Early experiments conducted with a prototype of NeverMind suggest that the long-term memory recall accuracy of sequences of items is nearly tripled compared to paper-based memorization tasks. With this project, we hope to make the memory palace method accessible to novices and demonstrate one way augmented reality can support learning.
