Loci App Link and Demo

Your thoughts are no longer confined to a little screen!  Using the Loci augmented reality you can visually map ideas and notes from your mind to real locations (loci) in your house or office that have meaning for you.

Placing your notes and ideas in locations improves your memory for making decisions and communicating your ideas even when you are not using the Loci software.  Loci enables you to improve your memory using the ancient method of loci (also known as memory palace).  The method of loci has been shown to be effective in recent scientific studies.

Loci is a method of loci mixed reality mind mapping application for HoloLens. It is available now for evaluation and purchase on the Microsoft Store.  See the Windows Store link, description, short video demo, and feature comparison below.
