From time to time, Morning Edition tells stories of people who have unique commutes. 90.3 listeners have heard stories about northeast Ohioans who bike and bus to work. There's even the story of one man who fishes on his way to the office. But ideastream®'s Eric Wellman tells the story of a non-human commuter -- a robot who commutes to "work."
