A lot of people find it is difficult to remember simple things like phone numbers or directions.

And sometimes you can’t remember someone’s name. It’s embarrassing!

Now scientists are developing a digital device to help us with our memory.

Scientists at Southampton University are saying that there will soon be technology that is similar to hearing aids or glasses. But this technology will help you to remember. A memory aid could be available in the next five to ten years.

We already have technology to help us remember things. For example, our mobile phones help us remember phone numbers. Satellite Navigation systems (Sat Naves) help us remember directions.
