A Programmable Touch-Typing Knob for Gaming, Programming, Office Work and Anything You Want from a Keyboard !!
Genius-Knob is an innovative idea that solves real problem! People are used to controlling the keyboard with left hands and control the mouse with right hands, but the keyboard is not easy to fully control by a single hand.
Some of the right-hand keys and complicated functions such as macro and batch script processing can be assigned to the knob now to avoid losing control of the mouse by using right hands.
How? When you are rotating the knob forward/backward or making single-click/double-click, you are actually acting four different input commands. In this way, one knob is equal to four custom functions. When putting it into practice, you will be amazed how great it is!
Everything is under control with the Genius-Knob
There are two ways you can use knob in any game:
- 1. The 4 default commands of the Genius-knob are PageUp, PageDown, Home, and End. By entering “Key Settings”, you can assign any operation to the knob. Taking the example of PUBG, you can get superior functions by assigning this way: Energy Drink – PageUp, Bandage – PageDown, First Aid Kit – Home, and Painkiller – End.
- 2. By using our software(DREVO POWER CONSOLE), you can relate this knob to any key or operation commonly used in a game by default. E.g. Forward – M, Backward – K, Single-click – 6, Double-click – =.
With the knob, in most cases, you do not need to look at the keyboard to activate game skills, so that you can be always a step ahead at the tense gaming session.
Update, May 17th:
