Commit, Then Figure it Out. - Mick Ebeling at FutureM 2015

At the FutureM conference 2015, I had the chance to listen to the story of keynote speaker and founder of Not Impossible Labs, Mick Ebeling, who took the impossible journey to help Americans with Disabilities make a better life for themselves and leverage the technology around them to do the things they once did.  




Mick has been honored by Advertising Age as one of the “Top 50 Most Creative People” in 2014 and was the recipient of the Muhammad Ali Humanitarian of the Year Award in 2014.  In 2010, TIME magazine called his Eyewriter invention one of the “50 Best Inventions of 2010,” and now the device exists as part of the permanent collection of New York’s Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).
Nick spoke about his journeys developing the Eyewriter with a group of developers who wanted to help an artist known as Tempt One, who was suffering from ALS create artwork once again after losing full mobility. Watch the video on the success Mick had with Tempt having an artist create after 7 years! 



After Mick's endevour with Tempt, he sought on a new challenge known as Project Daniel. Mick traveled to Sudan to 3D-print arms for children who lost their limbs in the war as well as teach locals how to continue with the effort.  Ebeling spoke about his political, technical and life altering challenges in developing the first-ever 3D printing prosthetic lab in the Nuba Mountains. Learn about his challenges in the following video:




As Jeff spoke,  I reflected on the challenges NTI faces in helping Americans with Disabilities back into the workplace. Specifically, I set up my own hacker challenge a year ago without an end result. I wanted to see if we can get individuals who have lost the use of their hand, such as a stroke victim, to be able to type at 35 word per minute once again.  If this could be possible, I could get HUNDREDS of jobs for individuals with disabilities and get their lives back once again so they can be sustainable.   I came up with a game plan, but need some help with the challenges and execution. Who is up for the challenge to make a difference?!?!?!? Here are my findings so far using a Swype solution to the issue:

NTI would love to help out Americans with Disabilities overcome their adversities similar to what Mick has been doing. During his book signing, I put Mick on the spot and challenged him to join our hacker effort.  We left it as we would talk more about the subject after the conference and am hopeful we can work it out as I would love to create good things for good people. If you would like to be a part of the solution or help out, let me know by reaching out.

  2. Hello everyone out there, I'm here to give my testimony about a herbalist doctor who helped me. I was infected with HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS in 2011, I went to many hospitals to heal myself but there was no solution, so I was thinking how I can get a solution so that my body can be well. One day I was in the river thinking about where I can go to get a solution. so a lady walked towards me telling me why I'm so sad and I open everything by telling her my problem, she told me she could help me, she introduced me to a doctor who uses herbal medicines to cure the SIMPLEX HERPES VIRUS and gave me your email, so I sent you an email. He told me everything I had to do and also gave me instructions to take, which I followed correctly. Before I knew what was happening after two weeks, the SIMPLEX HERPES VIRUS that was in my body disappeared. therefore, if you also have a broken heart and need help, you can also send an email to {oliha.miraclemedicine@gmail.com}or whatsapp him number: +2349038382931 or Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/drolihamiraclemedicine/Contact him today and he will have a testimony ... Good luck!

  5. Happiness is all i see now I never thought that I will be cured from HERPES virus again. I have been suffering from a deadly disease (HERPES) for the past 3 years now, I had spent a lot of money going from one places to another, from churches to churches, hospitals have been my home every day residence. Constant checks up have been my hobby not until this faithful day, I was searching through the internet, I saw a testimony on how DR agaba helped someone in curing his HERPES disease, quickly I copied his email which is Dragabasolutionhome@gmail.com just to give him a test I spoke to him, he asked me to do some certain things which I did, he told me that he is going to provide the herbal cure to me, which he did, then he asked me to go for medical checkup after some days after using the herbal cure, behold I was free from the deadly disease, he only asked me to post the testimony through the whole world, faithfully am doing it now, please brothers and sisters, he is great, I owe him in return. if you are having a similar problem just email him on : Dragabasolutionhome@gmail.com or WhatApp: +2349074536486
