Abstract

Phones of the future will have video screens for face-to-face communications. This invention addresses the desire of telephone users to maintain the mobility of a cordless phone within the new video screen telecommunications technology. The portable video screen unit will consist of a view screen, which allows the home user to see the remote user; and a moveable eyeball camera, which allows the remote user to see the home user. The hand held unit will operate by sending a cordless video feed signal back and forth to a base unit, in a similar manner to the way that a Sony camcorder communicates with a linked Sony TV.
