Welcome to Impossible Incorporated LLC
Impossible Incorporated's mission is to solve life's Wouldn't it be nice if ...? problems with novel engineering solutions
Do you have a technical or engineering problem and don't know where to turn? We offer custom engineering design and development consulting services
Our continuing project is building low-cost, 3D printed snake-like robots for inspection and repair
Impossible Incorporated began its work on snake-like robots with the goal of running wires through walls without creating a mess. As the project progressed, we have transitioned into offering low-cost, 3D printed snake-like robots for inspection and repair. We want to be the robot for everyone!
Our snake-like robot consists of rigid links with the first mechanism that allows them to extend and rotate in a single joint. This mechanism can also be used in a variety of applications outside of robotics.
We have also developed gear box technologies such as the world's smallest, strongest gearbox.
All of the technologies are available for purchase and/or licensing and are patent-pending in the US and abroad.
Each link in the robot is identical and can rotate relative to the adjacent link both in a single plane or 3 dimensional space. The robot can then form "S shapes" and brace itself against the walls of a cavity to climb in 3 dimensions
Is your organization dealing with a technical issue you can't seem to solve?
Not sure who to call or what the right question even is?
That is where Impossible Incorporated comes in. We specialize in figuring out what the problem is. Once identified, we can generally solve it in-house or recommend you to someone else who can.

Impossible Incorporated LLC was founded in December, 2013 to commercialize Dr. Matt Bilsky's passion and experience in Engineering Design and Development. Combining skills in the Mechanical, Electrical, and Computer Engineering fields along with a design background and construction industry experience Impossible Incorporated is able to provide its customers with novel, outside-the-box solutions to life’s it would be nice if… problems.
Dr. Bilsky and Impossible Incorporated tied for 2nd place in the 2016 Lemelson/MIT Invention Competition. The following 2 minute video tells his story and the founding of the company.
The company was formed as part of Dr. Bilsky's novel Entrepreneurial Minded Dissertation (EMD) program that he created where he taught his way through a PhD, funded the development of the snake-like robot using economic development grants, and got to walk away owning the patents for the robot (not Lehigh University as is typically the case in doctoral research). Dr. Bilsky gave a 5 minute talk at the University Economic Development Association 2018 conference describing how he leveraged economic development resources to empower student startups.
