A new tool for the creative process
Surface Dial is a completely new way to interact with the technology.
Save, customize, access, navigate and create tools in the digital world - from concept to creation.
We draw, scribble and sketch to organize our thoughts and to communicate with others. With Surface Dial in one hand and the Surface Pen in the other, you can give free rein to your creativity with easy access to shortcuts, controls, drawing tools and more.
Do what you love
Click and hold the Surface Dial to display a radial menu of tools - making it easier and faster to do what you love.
Imagine undoing every single line of a drawing step by step, changing the pencil color or brush size, scrubbing through video content, rotating 3D vectors or manipulating parameters - all at the flick of a wrist!
Imagine the new way to design
Place your dial directly on the screen (currently only possible on the Surface Studio) and watch how a color selection or a ruler is magically displayed on your digital drawing board. The haptic feedback provides helpful vibrations through the aluminum body into your fingertips to help you stay in touch and feel the contact with work.
Simplify and find your flow
Adjust the volume of your favorite spotify song, browse through articles on your favorite news websites without touching your keyboard or mouse.
Fly through your local city in Windows Maps, zoom in and out as you glide your fingers across the touch screen. Even the little things feel a lot more fun.
