Death machine: Man makes a machine that kills a person within a minute. A good invention?

The human species has progressed from blazing fires and producing stone-tipped arrows to developing smartphone apps and autonomous robots in a comparatively short period of Tim. Today's technology advancements will definitely continue to change the way we live, work, and connect with one another, and it's only a matter of time before we live in a world of self-driving cars and artificial intelligence.

Philip Nitschke is an anti-euthanasia activist from Australia. He invented a contraption that would change the way we die.

We have seen the rise of social media, cellphones, self-driving automobiles, and autonomous flying vehicles in this century. In addition, there have been significant advancements in energy storage, artificial intelligence, and medical science. We are confronted with enormous concerns such as global warming and food security, to name a few. Human intellect and inventiveness are the only things that can help humanity deal with these problems.

Should the right to die be granted to any sensible person?

Sarco is a coffin-sized pod that you enter to intentionally murder yourself in a painless and tranquil manner. The Sarco will be seated on a liquid nitrogen generator that, when activated, will lower the oxygen level in the capsule, causing hypoxia. When exposed to low oxygen settings, the body gradually shuts down, resulting in an elevated heart rate and fast breathing.

A person enters the Sarco, lies down, and hits a button to die when they are ready. The user loses consciousness in one minute and dies shortly after. Sarco will have "style and elegance" in one minute, according to Nitschke.

Those who wish to use it will have to first complete an online test to see if they are of sound mind enough to commit themselves. Is anyone above the age of 50 entitled to die on their own terms?

The world's first 3D-printed "suicide machine" seeks to make death as simple as pressing a button.
