Compare LiquidAssets, MemoryJar and PowersAsPrograms. See also BrainUploading, where some or all of the subject's personality is copied/transferred along with the memories. May be used in MemoryGambit. This trope can intersect with GhostMemory if memories from one person are copy-and-pasted into another.

* ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' again got one of everything. The Thought Bottle, an item that appeared in ''[[http://index.rpg.net/display-entry.phtml?mainid=2697 Tome of Magic]]'', does exactly this. Possible uses as a relatively secure data medium or MemoryGambit prop were mentioned.
** In ''TabletopGame/ForgottenRealms'' tel'kiira ("elven lore-gem") are memory storage devices used as write-at-will personal logs and spellbooks, normally usable only by elves and worn mostly by nobility. Physically, it's a little gem stuck on the forehead of its wearer, most of the time sunk in and not visible. Ancestral lore-gem worn by generations of heirs of a noble House has a value much like the flag of a military unit: not waved around in vain, and losing it counts as a major disgrace. An elven kingdom that didn't allowed humans into capital knighted a human just for carrying one of these from a dying heir to the new rightful wearer, past their guards. Variants include books of elven advanced magic, secret agents' tools and occasional hybrids with other enchanted gems, up to ioun stones turned into [[AttackDrone semi-sentient defensive spellgem following the owner]].

* The third episode of ''Series/BlackMirror'' focuses around a device called a Grain. It records memories and is capable of replay with all kinds of features like zoom, crop, reconstruction. You can also share memories with people and there is a black market for people's grains.

* Spells in ''ComicBook/TheHerderWitch'' are taught in such a manner. Morie and Padora in the fifth issue transfer each other knowledge of their exclusive spells in such a manner, Morie learning Padora's water spell and Padora Morie' light spell. The memories can also be extracted in solid form (as a small capsule) to be absorbed later. Romantic implications also abound, with the intimacy depicted in passing each other spells.
