Remember those customized children's books that the rich kids in school used to get, featuring a story with their name and face pasted onto the pages? It turns out that these things are still going, but now the companies that make them are harnessing the power of the internet to make them even more personal. Lost My Name is a UK company that's launching a new customized book, entitled The Intergalactic Journey Home that incorporates information like satellite images of the kid's home. That way, the star of the show will actually fly over their own home during the dramatic conclusion of the book. Cool, huh?

If the company is to be believed, The Intergalactic Journey Home is the world's most advanced children's picture book ever created. As well as pictures of their home, the book mashes NASA photography and algorithmically-generated images for artwork that's unique to each individual book. All of that creativity will cost you, however, with the book priced at $29.99 with free worldwide shipping. If you want to make something beautiful to celebrate your kid's birthday, then head over to the site and enter their name and zipcode and you'll be on your way.
