Google Backed Startup Brings World’s Most Technologically Advanced Children’s Book to Canada
Technology company Lost My Name releases The Incredible Intergalactic Journey Home
UK-based publishing and technology startup, Lost My Name, today announced the Canadian launch of The Incredible Intergalactic Journey Home, the world’s most technologically
advanced book. This announcement is on the heels of the company’s $9 million Series A investment led by Google Ventures and recognition as one of Fast Company’s 10 Most Innovative Companies in Media. The company’s first book,
The Little Boy/Girl Who Lost His/Her Name sold over 1.5 million copies in over
170 countries worldwide in less than two years.
“The Incredible Intergalactic Journey Home combines the power of storytelling with technology to create a magical and personalized storytelling experience for children,” said Asi Sharabi, co-founder of Lost My Name. “Not only do children get to star as a main character in the story, their actual neighbourhood appears at the end of the book when they’ve finally found their way home.”
The Incredible Intergalactic Journey Home follows a child and their robot friend on an adventure from the depths of outer space to their own front door. The experience is different for every child as aspects of the storyline and imagery are personalized based upon where they actually live - from the country flag on the spaceship and the view of Earth from outer space, to seeing familiar pictures of key country, city and town locations as the adventure gets closer to its conclusion where the child returns to their actual home address. The story is brought vividly to life utilizing NASA’s open source photography of outer space, and mapping technologies that enable a close-up flyby of the child’s actual neighbourhood and landmarks near their house.
“We’ve taken personalization to a higher level, creatively and technically, and we’re always looking for innovative ways to introduce The Incredible Intergalactic Journey Home to the world,” said David Cadji-Newby, author and co-founder of
Lost My Name. “A copy of the story is actually on the International Space Station right now and was recently read by British astronaut Tim Peake in space.”
