My memory places this at 1978, maybe 79 at the latest.  What sticks in my
mind is that what I saw was a CPU, keyboard, printer and display all in one
rather large desktop box.  Why it remains in my mind is that the product
was exactly what we were working on at the time and the name of the outfit
had "Robotics" in it (very unusual for the time).  Maybe not USR, but if
not, can anyone think of another "Robotics" computer firm back then?

Cheers,
Chuck
