video camera hidden behind leather with 1/8" hole for lens. When you hold
the book you see yourself on the screen. The original 1949 binding is

that runs the system when it is off the base. While on the base
the screen power is supplied by a separate transformer to enable
continuous operation when the book is on display. The base has an
indicator light that is green while charging and turns off when the
battery pack is fully charged.
