A new tool for the creative process
Surface Dial is a completely new way to interact with technology. Store, customize, access, navigate, and reimagine physical tools in the digital world—from concept to creation. We draw, scribble, and sketch to organize our thoughts and communicate with others. With Surface Dial in one hand and Surface Pen in the other, you can unlock your creativity with easy access to shortcuts, controls, drawing tools, and more.
Do the things you love
Click and hold Surface Dial to display a radial menu of tools, making it easier and faster to do the things you love. Imagine being able to undo each individual line of a drawing step-by-step, change pencil color or brush size, scrub through video content, rotate 3D vectors or manipulate parameters, in a single turn.
Reimagine the way you design
Place your Dial directly on the screen and watch as a color picker or a ruler magically appears on your digital drafting table. Haptic feedback provides helpful vibrations through the aluminum body into your fingertips, to help you stay in the moment and feel totally in touch with your work.
Simplify and find your flow
Adjust the volume on your favorite Spotify track, scroll through articles on your favorite news websites without touching your keyboard or mouse. Fly through your local city in Windows Maps, zooming in and out whilst panning across the touchscreen with your fingers. Even the little things feel a little more fun.
