Pfft, who needs CAPTCHA? We’ve got CATTCHA, you know.

I was just IM'd this - yes, human proof by kitten.

Simple and brilliant, but might be susceptible to forgery by dogs or other interested parties.

    Very cool. [resisited the urge for a "I Tawt I Saw A Puddy-Tat………I did, I did!" joke]

    Yeah, the TweetyBot will be the one that defeats the system! 🙂

    Too many images, too bulky, and will everyone in the world recognize cats or whatever one decides to place there ?

  4. Tristan K says:

    Yep – you’d have to publish a brochure for non-cat-people on how they’d recognize a cat (or on what ducks look like, and only use cats and ducks).

    And beyond that… high bandwidth/overhead requirements, and it’d be tricky to implement in a universally accessible way ("please identify cat noises from this panel of nine").

    Still, I thought it was a fun idea.
