Irish designer Sadhbh Doherty has designed a special and ingenious way to retain the digital memories held by disposed phones.

According to designer, users will get back the digital memory from their used phones in the form a bead, called the 'Arcque,' that contains a memory chip which can be read by a bluetooth-enabled device. The bead is made from a plastic derived from pulverized circuit boards. The bead is powered by a kinetic motor. 

Implications - Getting a new phone is a difficult decision, with all of the memories, photos and information they now store. This Arcque bead promises to store the digital memories of your phone so that you can carry those memories with you wherever you go.
