A mobile phone application that uses an ancient memory technique to help you learn as you walk around.


A mobile application that brings an ancient memory technique to our 21st century location aware technologies.

The Method of Loci is an ancient Roman memory technique in which one uses his or her imagination to place images along a familiar path as a way to remember a sequence of things or ideas. Loci re-imagines this technique within the framework made possible by location aware technologies, to create a learning platform for the urban experience.

Have something you wish to remember? Enter it into the application along a path on a map, and begin the walk. As you reach your locations, what you want to remember, along with dynamically generated mnemonic devices, images, audio, and video, will appear.
