Futurama's suicide booths are here

Much like Futurama's suicide booths, Australian euthanasia advocate Dr. Philip Nitschke has launched a 3D-printed sarcophagus for self-euthanasia. Only comes with the quick and painless setting.

It is easy to use the Sarco capsule. It just requires an access code. Anyone who wants to end their life is required to complete an online mental questionnaire in order to obtain a 4-digit code that will open the capsule. Once it is opened, the person can get inside and lie down inside the device and start it either by pressing a button, voice activation or a series of blinks. Once the lid is closed, the machine gets filled with liquid nitrogen which in turn lowers the oxygen level. Within a few minutes the person inside is dead. Later, the capsule can be removed to be used as a coffin.
