How Sketchy Works

Unique memory spaces for
microbes and drugs

Our video library of narrated lectures present microbes and drugs in their own memorable spaces, allowing you to create a memory palace with our scenes. This visual spatial technique is used by memory champions, and will allow you to remember facts as if they were objects in a room.


Intuitive sketches that come to life

Sketches are drawn and explained piece by piece so you are never bogged down by a busy image. Instead of resorting to random symbols, we strive to present cohesive scenes and stories that make sense so information is easier to recall.
