Frequently Asked Questions

Does one need to be a designer or have 3D graphic expert skills to create spatial note structures?

No. Our solution was designed to be easily and intuitively used by any person, including children and does not require any special skills to organize information in 3D. It does not take much time to create even huge documents, you basically concentrate on your content, not on how to use the solution.

Can I add relationships between notes or cubes?

Currently only the parent/child relationships are explicitly created and shown in the structure of knowledge. At the same time, there are multiple implicit relationships that are created due to embodied cognition, spatial awareness and metaphors mechanisms enabled by our solution.

We also plan to add explicit ways to show more types of relationships between notes in future.

Can I add video?

Not yet, but we should have this feature shortly. We really want it ourselves.

Can I drag and drop a file?

Currently you can only drag and drop an image file. We plan to add support for uploading and dragging and dropping other types of file in the future.

Do you support not only cubes but other solids?

For now we decided to have only the cubes, since their faces cover six major directions people are used to - up/down, left/right, forwards/backwards. Adding more directions can make navigation more complicated, while providing less would make organizing capabilities too limited.

Another reasons for us to limit the solids we use to cubes is the fact that six faces of a cube roughly correspond to the major cognitive bottleneck of people - short-term memory. Having six ideas on different sides of a cube enables a person to easily establish relationships between the ideas, which helps to better understand this cubical chunk of material. Adding more faces would make it impossible to hold all the information in short-term memory simultaneously, while making establishing multiple relationships too time consuming and unpractical.

Thus, we decided to use cubes as they are optimal from the cognitive point of view for boosting understanding, memory, and providing an easy way to navigate.
