Watch This Cheeky Robot Trick a CAPTCHA Into Thinking It's Not a Robot

By Casey Chan on at

When the machines rise up, I’m jumping ship and selling out humanity so fast — we suck, we deserve it. So colour me excited to see this cute ol’ robot arm hilariously beat an ‘I’m not a robot’ CAPTCHA (and then let go of the stylus in a perfect mic drop right after). It’s one small step for robots, and one giant leap for the impending revolution.

And plus, I just knew those newfangled CAPTCHAs that just asked you to check a box did absolutely nothing. The video’s goofy ending is especially good, too. [Matt Unsworth/Youtube]
