Mick Ebeling

Not Impossible

Mick Ebeling is the founder and CEO of Not Impossible, an organization that develops creative solutions to real-world problems. Inspired by an article he’d read, Ebeling flew to Sudan to 3D-print and fit prosthetic limbs for children of the war-torn region, then left the equipment behind with locals he’d trained who continued after he left, thus establishing the world’s first 3D printing prosthetic lab and training facility. Mick’s Not Impossible endeavors came to prominence with the Eyewriter: a DIY, open-source, low-cost device that enables individuals with paralysis to communicate and create art using only the movement of their eyes.
