  • Description

    A talking robot, called Klatu, has flown from the United States to Switzerland, where he will be attending a management conference. The one point six metre high (five feet three inches) robot was immediately surrounded by newsmen and a police escort on his arrival in Zurich. He caused a small sensation when he announced in metallic tones: "I love to be in Switzerland. Where are the pretty girls?" Klatu didn't eat much on the nine and a half hour flight from New York. But he did prove to be demanding in other ways.

    SYNOPSIS: Invented by an American businessman Klatu has an instant vocabulary of two hundred and fifty words -- many of these designed to flatter attractive women.

    Klatu will address a conference of some four hundred and fifty businessmen, economists and politicians at the fashionable winter sports resort of Davos -- provided his batteries don't run out.
