The latest installment of Intel’s Look Inside short films features the work of Mick Ebeling, and his mission to help those who lost their limbs in bombing attacks in South Sudan. As the CEO of Not Impossible Labs and The Ebeling Group, Ebeling was able to assemble a team of experts in prosthetics, physiology and physical therapy, as well as the inventor of the RoboHand, to bring his vision to life.

With the help of an American doctor in South Sudan, it took the team just four months to give a boy named Daniel the ability to feed himself once again. Intel and Precipart were instrumental in Ebeling’s work, who provided the tools and equipment necessary to get the job done.

Shot by the agency Venables Bell & Partners, and directed by Oscar-nominated Lucy Walker, the short film follows the team to Sudan where they change Daniel’s life, and provide the community with resources to help each other in the wake of the brutal attacks that affected countless others.
