I wish I could’ve used memory techniques more often, but what’s holding me back is the lack of large memory palaces. So, I’ve checked out which new games are available for Oculus Rift. Have any of you tried any of these?
- Roblox. You can download other people’s maps, and build your own houses. And to save time one can get others to build at Fiverr (just search for roblox)
- Rec Room. You can make your own houses, I haven’t tried either, but at first glace it looks more cumbersome than Roblox.
For the sole purpose of making memory palaces, I got Minecraft, but that was time down the drain. I learnt the basics, but building isn’t done in a flash, and the maps lacked enough detail to be useful. So alas, I’ve got no great tool for custom maps.
Right now I’d like to build a map for learning about Big Five personality traits. Ideally I’d like a star shaped house, each of the five “prongs” in the star would be a hall (making it one hall for each trait) and in each hall I’d have six doors leading to separate rooms (one for each of the 6 facets of each trait).
