In a relatively short period of tTim, the human race has gone from building fires and making stone-tipped arrows to creating smartphone apps and autonomous robots. Today, technological progress will undoubtedly continue the way we live, work and interact with each other - and it's only a matter of time before we are living in an era of self-driving cars and artificial intelligence.
Philip Nitschke: An Australian euthanasia activist. He introduced a machine to revolutionize the way we die.
In this century, we have witnessed the emergence of social media, smartphones, self-driving cars, and autonomous flying vehicles. There have also been huge leaps in energy storage, artificial intelligence, and medical science. We are facing immense challenges in global warming and food security, among many other issues. It is human innovation and ingenuity that can help humanity deal with these issues.
Should any rational person be given the right to die?
Sarco is a coffin-size pod you get into in order to painlessly and peacefully kill yourself on purpose. The Sarco will sit on a generator that uses liquid nitrogen that, when released, will bring down the level of oxygen in the capsule to induce hypoxia. When put in environments with low levels of oxygen, the body slowly begins to shut down, resulting in increased heart rate and rapid breathing.
In the Sarco, a person simply steps inside, lies down and, when ready, presses a button to die. Within one minute, the user loses consciousness; death shortly follows. Nitschke: Sarco will have "style and elegance" within one minute.
Those who want to activate it will first have to take an online test to determine whether or not they are of sound mind to commit suicide. Does anyone over 50 deserve the right to die on their own terms?
"Suicide Machine" is the world's first 3D-printed "suicide machine" and aims to make death as easy as pressing a button.
