The Euthanasia Coaster
The euthanasia roller coaster is a hypothetical euthanasia machine in the form of a roller coaster. In 2010 it was designed and made into a scale model by Julionas Urbonas. It is engineered to humanely—with elegance and euphoria—take the life of a human being.
It kills its passengers through prolonged cerebral hypoxia. The seven inversions in the ride inflict 10 g on the rider for 60 seconds. Depending on the person and their tolerance to the g force, either the 1st or the 2nd inversion would render them brain dead.
HERE is a short video where Julionas goes into more detail about his art piece.
