In today’s hyperconnected, digitally dependent world, we are relying less and less on our own ability to remember things. We automatically turn to our handheld computers whenever we need to unearth a piece of information that’s not top of mind — whether that’s an address, a phone number, a movie title, or some other extraneous fact.

Check out the demo in the video above, and for more on Ribbing’s mind-blowing memory hacks, listen to his podcast interview on Bulletproof Radio.
