Behold, The Euthanasia Coaster - the ride of your life, specifically designed to kill you in as thrilling a fashion as possible. As its creator, Royal College of Art PhD student Julijonas Urbonas explains:
"Euthanasia Coaster" is a hypothetic euthanasia machine in the form of a roller coaster, engineered to humanely — with elegance and euphoria — take the life of a human being. Riding the coaster's track, the rider is subjected to a series of intensive motion elements that induce various unique experiences: from euphoria to thrill, and from tunnel vision to loss of consciousness, and, eventually, death. Thanks to the marriage of the advanced cross-disciplinary research in space medicine, mechanical engineering, material technologies and, of course, gravity, the fatal journey is made pleasing, elegant and meaningful."
Amazing. I flipping love roller coasters. And this is the ultimate roller coaster. I'm in.
Via Dvice. Cheers Tim for sending it through.
