A 2D, 2.5D, or 3D environment with interface suitable for building and navigating virtual mind palaces. Objects (the Anytype concept) may be realized as objects or rooms (or other kinds of places) in the environment. The environment can be navigated in a number of ways ranging from Myst-style point-and-click to FPS-style WASD-key or thumbstick, depending on user preference. Objects can be interacted with to call up detail views as already built. Structures captured in relations can be visualized in spatial ways, such as calendar days being arranged as a sequence or helix. Saved, custom graph views can be suspended in space. And Apple’s upcoming Vision Pro can be given a serious use case.
Oh boy maybe like next decade?
Approximately as varied and idiosyncratic as Anytype users. Mind palaces, by their nature, are extremely personal and it is unlikely that any more than a few people will agree except on obvious things like doors, windows, room shapes and sizes, shelves, boxes. After that, the combination and arrangement of those elements, as well as choices of less generally recognizable elements will emerge, unanticipated and unanticipatable, from people’s preferences.
No wait, I take that back. One use case that genuine memory palaces can never satisfy is being shared between multiple people. A virtual memory palace can be a shared experience and creation.
