From Eyewriter and Project Daniel, from "Technology for the Sake of Humanity" to "HelpOneHelpMany," we preview the new book by Not Impossible’s own founder Mick Ebeling.
Can I really make the impossible possible? That’s the question Not Impossible's own Mick Ebeling asks himself in his new book “Not Impossible: The Art and Joy of Doing What Couldn't Be Done.”
In the book, which is available in stores and online now, Mick discusses how he’s made a difference in people’s lives through technology by assembling teams to help others in need. Here's an excerpt!
In 2009, Mick and his team created the Eyewriter for Tempt, a graffiti artist struck down by ALS. Unable to express himself creatively, by building a pair of glasses that could track his eye movements, Tempt was able to make art again.
In 2013's Project Daniel, Mick assembled a team to 3-D print a limb for a teenage boy in Sudan who lost both arms in a bomb blast. When Daniel used the 3-D-printed left arm to feed himself, it was the first time in two years he'd been able to effect the task.
“I believe that technology for the good of humanity can be attained and that people can learn to use anything if there is some inherent good imbedded in it,” Mick writes in the book. “I believe that anybody given the incentive to do good for the world will most likely strive for that.”
