Captcha is a great thing, it makes it more difficult (hopefully impossible) for bots to submit forms "blindly", creating/sending junk to mails/databases.
However, through time, we've become more and more aware it doesn't work as expected. It difficults communication, and as such, people make mistakes often in the common Captcha forms, making it sometimes a reason for giving up filling a form (specially when the form is big and it doesn't refill the sent information).
So, we thought: "wouldn't it be great to find a way to make a Captcha work better for humans and still be impossible to be submitted automatically by bots?"
We found a great concept for this answer at Ajax Fancy Captcha - jQuery Plugin, but also found in it a few bugs and easy ways for bots to "learn" how to bypass it. As there was nothing really good and innovative as we wanted it, we built our own!
