Mick Ebeling
CEO, Not Impossible Labs 

Honored as one of the Top 50 Most Creative People and a Muhammad Ali Humanitarian of the Year Award winner, Mick Ebeling is a film/ television/ commercial producer, philanthropist, technology trailblazer, author, ENTREPRENEUR and public speaker. Ebeling is CEO of Not Impossible, an organization that develops creative solutions to address real-world problems.

Not Impossible Labs was founded on Mick’s firm belief that nothing is impossible. With no technical background in ocular recognition technology, Ebeling created Not Impossible’s first project: The Eyewriter. An open source, low-cost, DIY device, The Eyewriter enables individuals with paralysis to communicate and create art using only the movement of their eyes. Time Magazine named The Eyewriter one of the “Top 50 Inventions of 2010,” and the device is now part of MoMA’s permanent collection.

Not Impossible’s latest endeavor, Project Daniel, now celebrates it’s 2 year anniversary. The subject of Intel’s “Look Inside” campaign, Project Daniel enabled Ebeling to fly to Sudan to 3-D-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 3-D 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.”

Ryan Stramrood
Extreme Adventurer and Ice Swimmer 
 

Ryan Stramrood is the quintessential average joe. He owns and runs a successful sales operation, is a single dad, and faces all the challenges of the daily grind. But by distinct contrast, Ryan is also one of SA’s Top Extreme Adventurers and Ice Swimmers. A dip into Ryan Stramrood’s swimming CV is impressive, and cold: he has already completed 101 Robben Island-to-mainland crossings and swam solo across the notorious English Channel. With a team of South Africans, he swam the first official “Ice Mile” in -1°C water in Antarctica, completed the world’s first swim around the southernmost tip of South America – Cape Horn – and, again with some extreme friends, was the first, South African male to swim from Europe to Africa across the Gibraltar Strait.
