2. Microsoft Surface Dial

The surface dial is an indispensable addition for anyone who uses their surface pro to access Adobe Creative Cloud, Mental Canvas, Bluebeam, Sketchable or StaffPad, as it allows you to quickly and efficiently access these tools in one place. You can also place it directly on the screen and enjoy a color picker and ruler that will automatically appear on your digital drafting table. However, the Surface Dial doesn’t have to be all work; you can also use it to adjust the volume on your music, as well as scroll through articles and maps.
