Mick Ebeling Invites Collaborators to Build a BrainWriter | SDF2013

Working to expand the human possibilities of technology, Mick Ebeling was named one of Wired magazine's 2015 "Make Tech Human" thought leaders. In 2014, he was awarded the Muhammed Ali Humanitarian of the Year Award and named one of Ad Age's ‘Top 50 Most Creative People.”

Ebeling is a film/television/commercial producer, philanthropist, technology trailblazer, author, entrepreneur and public speaker.

The CEO of Not Impossible Labs, Ebeling founded the organization that develops creative solutions to address real-world problems on his firm belief that nothing is impossible.

Not Impossible’s first project was the development of the award-winning ocular tracking device, the EyeWriter, which enables individuals with paralysis to communicate and create art using only the movement of their eyes. TIME magazine called it one of the “50 Best Inventions of 2010,” and the device is now part of the permanent collection of New York’s Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).

Not Impossible’s next endeavor, Project Daniel, is now celebrating its two-year anniversary. The subject of Intel’s “Look Inside” campaign, Project Daniel enabled Ebeling to fly to Sudan to 3D-print prosthetic limbs and fit them for children of the war torn region. He then left the equipment behind with trained locals to continue his work, thus creating the world’s first 3D-printing prosthetic lab and training facility. Arms are printed within hours and cost $100. TIME magazine said, “It’s hard to imagine any other device doing more to make the world a better place.”

Project Daniel has won numerous accolades. In 2014, it garnered the Titanium Cannes Lion as well as Gold and Bronze Lions. Project Daniel also won a 2015 SXSW Interactive Innovation Award, Association of Independent Commercial Producers’ Next Cause Marketing Award, Best in Show in the 2014 One Show, Silver and Bronze Telly Awards, and the 2014 Maker Faire Editor's Choice Blue Ribbon.

This year’s project, Don’s Voice, did not leave a dry eye in its wake. Released on Valentine’s Day 2015. Relaying the story of ALS-patient Don Loir telling his wife Lorraine “I love you” for the first time in 15 years, the emotionally captivating video received hundreds of thousands of views and widespread press in the first two weeks.

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. 

Ebeling's first book, Not Impossible: The Art and Joy of Doing What Couldn't Be Done. The book recounts his life experiences, the EyeWriter, and Project Daniel. Praised by Jillian Michaels as “a road map to changing your life by changing the lives of others,” and hailed by Deepak Chopra as “the template for a new science of consciousness,” the book is now in its fifth printing.

The Fallacy of “Impossible"

Since the launch of the EyeWriter and Not Impossible Foundation, Mick Ebeling has passionately studied the concept of “impossible.” All the modern conveniences we see around us were once considered impossible by people who didn’t know any better. Synthetic fabrics, cell phones, and digital watches (not to mention cars and computers) were all figments of the imagination until inspiration met execution and the impossible became a reality. In this talk, Ebeling dives deeper into “impossible,” the underlying psychological effects it has on an organization, and how to overcome “impossible” so true innovation can take place. 

Radical Collaboration

Take a Hollywood producer, a NY professor, a fine artist and a hacker with a criminal record…put them together and what do you get? A device that helped a paralyzed man create drawings using only the movement of his eyes. Collaboration comes in many forms—some of them unexpected. In this talk, Mick Ebeling discusses the tools necessary to become a stellar collaborator, and to recognize the traits of collaboration-worthy individuals for your next big idea.

Making the Next Industrial Revolution

Industrial Revolution 2.0—it's the next turning point in human history and we’re right in the middle of it.

Industrial Revolution 2.0 has been about the birth, adolescence and young adulthood of the Internet. It's been about communicating, relating, evaluating and buying. From social media to the Maker Movement, this revolution has shifted the way we live, work and interact with one another. It revolves around the newfound global accessibility of making our own solutions. Creator of one of TIME magazine’s “Top 50 Inventions” with little more than $70 of over-the-counter supplies, Mick Ebeling is uniquely qualified to discuss the factors that make this the most exciting time in modern history, and how to leverage those factors for the benefit of business and the betterment of society.
