Captcha Business Cards Ask: Are You Human?
July 8th, 2009
You know those annoying (but necessary) anti-robo-spam CAPTCHA boxes you have to deal with when filling out forms on the web? Here’s a clever idea for some eye-catching business cards based on CAPTCHA technology.
Berlin-based artist Aram Bartholl created these cards by uploading the individual images to MOO Cards, who specializes in making tiny business cards, each with a different image. While the cards ask the question “Are you human?”, I’m not quite sure what would happen if you handed one of these to a robot. Would it self-destruct? That would be cool.
Did you know CAPTCHA stands for “Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart”? I always thought it meant “Cats Acting Cool Taste Chocolate Ham Animals”. Mnemonics, your dear, dear friend.
