We are back to out regular Wednesday Cool Links, and to celebrate this occasion, we are treating you with more Wednesday Cool Links. I know, pretty original, right?

Grant Imahara gets a taco by copter at RoboGames 2013 (Video)
While RoboGames is an exciting event as is, being attacked by taco-slinging Hex-copters is a whole different story. Although the victims and witnesses state of the considerable taste enhancement of said tacos after the snacks have been airborne.
blank Pointer Pointer by @StudioMoniker
Amusing, but truly useless. Almost as useless (ok, just as useless) as the Useless Box!
blank IBM precisely places atoms to create the world’s smallest movie
Atoms make a sound when moved around! They look much like pixels, although pixels don't require two 2-ton microscopes and the temperature of -268oC in order to keep them still, which is a definite plus, because most of the movies are still produced using, hm, traditional methnods.
blank Wristwatch made of sandwiched PCBs
A wristwatch made of three stacked PCBs with a touch sensor which activates to display hours and nearest five minutes. Precision you say? I say aesthetic!
An Interactive Forest of Musical Lasers by Marshmallow Laser Feast
An interactive installation consisting of vertically installed rods when touched trigger both audio and visual cues. The description doesn't do it justice, check out the video.

So next time we are going to celebrate the Second Week of Return of the Cool Links Wednesday, you guessed right, with more cool links. And now I'm most likely going to celebrate One Hour Before the End of Work Day, with, you guessed right, more work!
