CAPTCHAs are those little skill tests that websites use to make sure you're human and not a robot. Sometimes you are asked to re-enter blurred text that is displayed on the screen, others are shown nine images, and you want to click on images that include, for example, a boat. There are a lot of different varieties of CAPTCHA, but they all share at least one feature: they suck.
But what if we lived in a world where CAPTCHAs didn’t suck? Presumably, developer Miquel Camps Orteza is the only developer who asks this question, and in doing so has created an imp-shooting CAPTCHA that really feels fun to solve.
It's called DOOM CAPTCHA and consists of shooting three Doom implants in a short (almost too short) period of time. Interestingly, involvement exists in the Wolfenstein universe, but this inconsistency doesn’t matter because, no matter where they are, shooting images is fun.
Camps Orteza writes in CAPTCHA Github Page that "they had the idea this Friday, developed the first version on Saturday morning, posted that night, and went live here on Sunday." It was also noted that it would be quite easy to “break the security” of the CAPTCHA and that the project is mostly fun. According to the topic, if you type IDDQD while CAPTCHA is active, you can skip it completely.
However, it makes you think of an alternative world where CAPTCHAs are not exhausting, confusing, sometimes mind-boggling pests. If you want to try it, go to Orteza Fields Github Page.
