Who we are and what we do


Based in the San Franciso Bay Area, WIELD creates wearable technology and systems that enable new types of human-machine interactions. Our R&D and IP portfolios currently include wearables, algorithms, back-end systems, and methods based on a new type of wearable user interface and sensor technology. In 2017, after developing this technology on his own for several years, Dustin Kimmel founded WIELD LLC to commercialize and accelerate this work.

In May of 2020, WIELD's next-generation wearable technology was funded by the National Science Foundation, which is dedicated to transforming promising scientific discovery into products and services with commercial and societal impact.
