Transformer HD is a portable yet fully functional CCTV with 3 in one camera and optional text to speech capability. It can be folded up to a small enough size to fit in a backpack or the included shoulder case. It attaches to a desktop or laptop computer or tablet and uses the computer monitor as a display. It can be attached via USB, HDMI or wifi to the computer. Keyboard commands control the functions of the Transformer. These include increasing the size of print, changing the color and contrast and using a split screen to view the CCTV and computer simultaneously. Images can be stored in the computer memory as a document, photo or video for future viewing. The camera allows for distance viewing, reading, writing and self viewing.
