The future of CAPTCHAs?

The purpose of a captcha is affectively to stop spammers filling out forms online and flooding your inbox with untold tripe! KittenAuth is a new, novel and much more fun thing to do than trying to dycpher an group of letters in a box.

It’s relativetively easy for a computer to work out CAPTCHA these days.

So instead why not "Click all foals then click submit" before filling out your next form – Genius!

    I did not realise how insecure CAPTCHAs are! Pretty nifty solution.
    The example they give (http://www.thepcspy.com/contact) has a pretty big box, and it actually took me a while to find all the squirrels.
    I wonder, would it be possible to just show the one image with a box asking what sort of animal it was? Or would a computer be too good at working that out do we think?
