U.S. RoboticsU.S. Robotics was a company that made computer modems. It merged with and became a subsidiary of 3Com Corporation in June 1997. Today, 3Com makes modems and networking devices under the U.S. Robotics brand name.
The name for the company is likely a reference to Isaac Asimov, who is widely credited with inventing the term robotics, and several of whose stories featured a fictional company named U.S. Robots and Mechanical Men. Interestingly, the 2004 movie I, Robot, loosely based on Asimov's works, uses U.S. Robotics as the name of the fictional robot manufacturer.
