Did you ever think you could end your life by just the press of a button? Well, there is no dearth in the advancement of technology, and when it comes to euthanasia, it sparks more interest.
Dr. Philip Nitschke, the founder and director of Exit International has developed a hi-tech euthanasia device named the Sarco capsule. It is a reusable 3D-printed euthanasia machine which would let anyone end their life by the press of a button.
The 70-year-old Dr. Nitschke, popularly known recently as “Dr. Death,” revealed his plans to launch the Sarco capsule next year which would be the world’s first 3D-printed euthanasia machine. It is an easy to use painless machine that would help people bring an end to their lives.
The device is designed in two parts. One part is a reusable machine base and the other is a capsule that can be detached and used as a coffin. The machine that has been developed in the Netherlands by Dr. Nitschke and Engineer Alexander Bannink, is designed in such a way that it can be 3D printed and assembled in any given location. According to a release by Exit International, the device’s design would be free, made open-source, and available on the internet.
