Along with Tesla and Uber booth geared up to break into the driverless car industry, the frog creative director Matt Conway thinks that we are not far from the autonomous vehicles saving us from ourselves.

VR which is used as therapy as something of a repeat from frog’s 2016 list. It’s only this year that the company expects that it will become so immersive that it could rewire people’s brains. There is already research that the shows VR can help people overcome their fears and PTSD.
