"Suicide Machine" That Lets You Experience Death Is Now Available For The Public To Try

April 19, 2018View for printing

Death could be as easy, quick, and painless as simply pressing a button. At least, that's what the creator of the world's first 3D-printed "suicide machine" intends for the future.

Open to the public for the first time, Dr Philip Nitschke (nicknamed Dr Death) announced plans to debut his latest suicide-assisting machine "Sarco" (short for sarcophagus) at Amsterdam's Funeral Fair later this month. You can try it out for yourself - at least, in virtual reality - by stepping inside a full-size depiction of the euthanasia capsule. VR glasses give the user a glimpse into how the death machine operates.
