An engineer has come up with macabre rollercoaster concept where passengers are thrilled and then ‘killed’.
The chilling Euthanasia Coaster is a theoretical machine engineered to ‘humanely, with elegance and euphoria, take the life of a human being’.
It is designed to subject the rider to a series of unique experiences from euphoria to thrill and from tunnel vision to loss of consciousness.
Chilling: The model, designed by Julijonas Urbonas, looks like an ordinary roller coaster – but is designed to kill
Ghoulish: A simulated face shows the process of going from consciousness (left), to becoming drowsy and finally dead (right) after succumbing to cerebral hypoxia, or lack of oxygen to the brain, during the ride
When travelling at 100m/s, the passenger would then pass away following a lack of oxygen reaching the brain.
The surreal structure is the brainchild of Lithuanian engineer Julijonas Urbonas.
