I have designed a CAPTCHA that is based on the identification of attributes contained in an image generated by the grouping of easily recognized 3-D objects. I call this the Virtual Photographic CAPTCHA and it is likely to remain invulnerable to automated attack for many years to come. A [2]novel anti-spam system necessitated its development.”

This system looks very promising in weeding out those comment spammers that so plague blogs and forums to date. I find the concept very intriguing and wonder why it took this long for some genius to figure out that bots can be trained to read simple 2-D images, but are nowhere near capable of deciphering 3-D images (yet).
