Mick Ebeling is the founder and CEO of Not Impossible LLC, an organization that develops creative solutions to real-world problems, then produces media to ensure those solutions take flight.
A recipient of many of the advertising industry's most prestigious awards, Mick is also the founder of The Ebeling Group, an acclaimed production company responsible for key creative graphic sequences in Quantum of Solace and the oft-referenced Stranger Than Fiction.
Mick is the latest subject of Intel's "Look Inside" campaign, which is centered around Project Daniel. Inspired by an article he'd read, Mick 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 prosthetics lab and training facility. The campaign approached 2 million YouTube views in its first week.
Activated by his motto "If not now, when? If not me, who?" 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. Among its many accolades, Time magazine named it one of the Top 50 Inventions of 2010, and the device is part of MoMA's permanent collection.
Driven to help many by telling the story of extraordinary individuals, Not Impossible continues to drive forward on projects that utilize technology for the sake of humanity. Consequently, Ebeling is an international speaker on the subject of open-source medical devices (CES, TED, Seoul Digital Forum, GE, Microsoft, and others), as well as a USA Network Top10 Cultural Trailblazer.
