On the cutting edge of the new â€œMaker Movementâ€â€”an outgrowth of the â€œhackersâ€ of a decade agoâ€”Mick Ebeling has found ways to create new, simple, do-it-yourself technologies to help people surmount seemingly impossible odds. With a bunch of nuts and bolts, a few jimmy-rigged web cameras and a coat hanger, he got a paralyzed artist drawing again; for less than a hundred bucks, he made prosthetic arms for a boy whose arms had been blown off in the war in Sudan.
From the beginning, Ebeling has dreamed big, but that doesnâ€™t mean his accomplishments have come easy. Heâ€™s had to deal with the little voice in his head we all recognizeâ€”the skeptical, disbelieving part that says, â€œSorry, this ainâ€™t happening.â€ Yet he found the courage to ignore that voice and move on. And believe. And get things done. The first result was the Eyewriter, which Time magazine called one of the â€œTop 50 Inventions of 2010,â€ a device that tracks eye movements and translates them into a cursor on a screen, then into paint on a canvas or a sculpture design. Later he travelled to the Sudan with the homemade prosthetic hand his team created and taught the locals to use the 3D printersâ€”now every week another armless boy gets new working limbs and hands.
Fascinating, inspiring, and bursting with optimism and new ideas, Not Impossible is a true testament to the power of determination. It will motivate you to accept the idea that all problems can be solvedâ€”and that you have the ability to change the world and make miracles happen.
