Switzerland Legalizes "Suicide Pod" For It's Citizens


Dutch designer Alexander Bannink explains how the "Sarco" euthanasia pod works as a woman experiences sitting in the device by wearing virtual reality glasses, on April 14, at the Amsterdam Funeral Expo. Called the "Sarco", short for sarcophagus, the 3D-printed machine invented by Australian euthanasia activist Philip Nitschke and Dutch designer Alexander Bannink comes complete with a detachable coffin, mounted on a stand that contains a nitrogen canister. The "Sarco" is a device "to provide people with a death when they wish to die, which is peaceful and reliable but also elegant and stylish," Nitschke told AFP.
