Logitech Craft Keyboard Features Built-in Smart Knob

Ever look at your keyboard and wish it had a knob you can play with? Well, Logitech has heard your prayers and is announcing their new Craft wireless Bluetooth keyboard. The Craft is a low profile, wireless keyboard that has a unique rotary knob on the top left side. This is similar to Microsoft’s Surface dial, although it does not sit on the screen.

Logitech is calling this feature “The Crown input dial”, and integrates right out of the box with various applications. This includes Adobe’s Creative Cloud applications in Windows and of course,  Microsoft’s office suite applications.

This dial rotates and accepts key presses to perform shortcuts. For example, a turn of the wheel brightens the image in Photoshop by default or zip through the timeline in Premiere. The Crown dial can also be set to do OS-level tasks such as alt-tabbing.

The keyboard itself has chiclet-style keys with a center indentation. There are secondary button features accessible via an Fn key where the right side Windows key normally is. Since it is wireless, users can also connect it to multiple devices. There is actually an Easy-Switch button available for quickly swapping between three connected devices.

Pricing and Availability

The Logitech Craft keyboard does not come cheap. In fact it costs more than most mechanical gaming keyboards at $199 USD. It will start showing up in retail stores starting October 2017.
