Don’t underestimate robots, or their ability to get around the ridiculous CAPTCHA services that are designed to keep internet scammers out.
This googly-eyed robot won’t let anything keep it offline. In a YouTube video uploaded by user Matt Unsworth this week, the desktop bot uses a stylus to check “I’m not a robot” on a web page. The video’s highlight is when the bot drops its stylus like a mic and the popular “Deal With It” sunglasses appear onscreen.
The 30-second offering might not show robots taking over the world, but we might be a step closer when the machines are tricking the machines.
