Some of the best memories a child can have is spending a day at the beach making sand castles; but instead of these creations existing only as distant memories save for a few old photos and perhaps some video, parents can immortalize them using the Memorabilia Factory. The Memorabilia Factory provides a unique formula that solidifies sand castles so that they can stand the test of time.

Developed by Bold-design, which was founded by William Boujon and Julien Benayoun in France, the Memorabilia Factory uses bacteria to achieve this feat. It comes with a mold, a bacteria solution (Sporosarcina pasteurii) and a calcifying agent. When used together, it hardens the sculpture through a process known as biological calcification.
