Alaska lawmakers and politicians will have a few more committed critics to contend with this session, but at least these guys have a sense of humor.
Alaska Robotics’ Kickstarter campaign closed last week after raising more than $8,000. That’s enough to fund six episodes of their satirical Alaska Robotics News video series over the course of 2014 legislative session.

The series will be available on the Alaska Robotics YouTube channel. The Legislature gavels in on Jan. 21.
