We help the world turn smarter.

Who we are

One of the first and truly great inventions of mankind is the wheel. The wheel allowed us to move the immovable, and as a result it set in motion new ways of thinking. But since its invention and despite continuous innovation in other areas, the wheel hasn’t really changed a lot. In 2014, this thought started the adventure that has now become wheel.me™. Our autonomous wheels let you move everything you’re used to moving, only way more easily. They even move things you'd never even thought you could move. But what we’ve really set in motion are ideas. Ideas about flexible walls. About changing room structures. About relocating heavy equipment just by telling it where to go. In short, ideas that move the status quo.

"In short, ideas that move the status quo."

What we do

At wheel.me™ we make businesses more competitive by allowing them to automate within current facilities as is, without needing to rebuild. We provide customers with a low entry cost compared to alternatives and offer them a significantly higher degree of flexibility by enabling them to put wheels on existing objects.
