Self-driving cars are the epitome of technological innovation, but as Greece-based artist James Bridle theorizes, you don't need to be a hacker to meddle with these autonomous cars. It's as simple as laying a ritual "salt circle" around the vehicle, which, because of the way self-driving cars strictly process road markings, could actually "trap" it inside the circle!

Though software engineers have yet to confirm or refute James' curious experiment, it raises the intriguing question of whether some nefarious third party could trick an autonomous vehicle.
