Not Impossible: The Art and Joy of Doing What Couldn't Be Done (Hardback)Mick Ebeling (author)
- Not available
From the beginning, Ebeling has dreamed big, but that doesn't mean his accomplishments have come easy. He's had to deal with the little voice in his head we all recognize-the sceptical, disbelieving part that says,"Sorry, this ain't happening."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 Timemagazine called one of the "Top 50 Inventions of 2010," 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 printers-now every week another armless boy gets new working limbs and hands.
Fascinating, inspiring, and bursting with optimism and new ideas, Not Impossibleis a true testament to the power of determination. It will motivate you to accept the idea that all problems can be solved-and that you have the ability to change the world and make miracles happen.
