Klatu the Household Android Quasar Industries Inc. (Anthony Reichelt President)

Klatu it was claimed at the time, was based on the utterance of the speech synthesizer chip when the word "u-talk" was spoken in reverse. Although appearing metallic, the spherical head was made from translucent plastic, and lit up when Klatu talked.

Klatu the Household Android was announced in the mid-1970s by Quasar Corporation. It could supposedly vacuum, dust, cook meals, walk the dog, do the laundry etc.. It responded to voice commands, although I don't know if it ever spoke. Some time later, the Quasar robot quietly disappeared from the media spotlight, never to be seen again. I found that one of the division managers at Quasar had decided that they were going to sell a robot, and it didn't matter that the technology they needed did not existed at that time. The robots that appeared in the media, in the meantime, were apparently radio-controlled by humans who just happened to be hanging around when the robot made an appearance.
