Eidetic memory – a priceless ability or an unfounded myth? Over-applied in cases of good memory, the idea of the existence of true eidetickers is questionable, because many individuals with remarkable memory rely on mnemonic strategies, mostly the method of loci ( or the mental walk), and other non-eidetic memory enhancing exercises.
Stephen Wiltshire, prodigious savant – capable of drawing an entire city skyline after a helicopter ride.
Andriy Slyusarchuk – memorised the first 30 million decimal places of pi, and can recite randomly selected decimal places from within the 30 million.
