Abstract
The memory is by far one of the brain’s most important and fundamental functions, but perhaps also one of the most unreliable. In order for information to be retained in memory, the brain performs, in a few milliseconds, an outstandingly complex process that is also very sensitive to external disturbances. With the information technology available today, it is easy to be distracted by redundant information, making it extra difficult or sometimes even impossible for the brain to succeed with that process. Therefore, the brain sometimes needs help.

The memory is by far one of the brain’s most important and fundamental functions, but perhaps also one of the most unreliable. In order for information to be retained in memory, the brain performs, in a few milliseconds, an outstandingly complex process that is also very sensitive to external disturbances. With the information technology available today, it is easy to be distracted by redundant information, making it extra difficult or sometimes even impossible for the brain to succeed with that process. Therefore, the brain sometimes needs help.

Memory Station is an analogue memory aid that is intended to be placed on the wall in a central location in your home and works in a similar way as to a notice board. Its purpose is, through its design and function, to combine a soothing feeling with the information you do not want to or must not forget and give you a simple overview of the things you need to remember. By placing the seven magnetic blocks, in different shapes and colours, on the wallboard, you can create your own memory map that will be easy to visualize, when you are not in front of the station. If multiple memories are linked to each other or if you want to hide private information, you can also combine the blocks by placing them next to or above each other. The blocks are magnetic so that you can attach paper notes or you can also write with white board pens directly on the surfaces of the blocks. (Less)
