Macunx VR, a platform for building memory palaces in Virtual Reality, is now over 75% funded on Kickstarter.
“Playing to the strengths of our visual and spatial memories, Macunx VR will make learning and remembering things easier than ever before,” those behind the campaign explain.
The Kickstarter campaign launched on 20th June and will run until 20th July.
“Rewards for pledges range from short memory courses to your very own custom-built memory palace,” this morning’s Kickstarter update notes.
Inspired by medieval monks, Aaron Ralby, founder of Macunx VR and CEO of Linguisticator, started researching the memory palace technique during his PhD at Cornell University. He has been teaching language learners how to build memory palaces to achieve full grammar and vocabulary retention since 2011.
According to an emailed statement, Macunx VR is designed to allow people to use the power of their visual and spatial memories to learn new subjects quickly and easily.
