With the designated purpose of ‘euthanasia and execution‘ , the “Euthanasia Coaster” is a concept for a real steel roller coaster that has been created to “show the future of humans and technology.” The creator of the coaster, Julijonas Urbonas, says the machine is engineered to take the life of a human being with “elegance and euphoria.” The idea of the coaster is to send out 24 people, all of which come back dead. A number of anti-human scientists are now hailing the concept as a method of execution that ‘highlights the issues that come with life extension’.
The coaster design begins with a steep-angled lift to the 1,670 foot top, which would take 2 minutes for the 24 passengers to reach. Afterwards, there would be a 1,600 foot drop that would bring the coaster up to 220 mph. Flattening out, the coaster would then begin the process of cerebral hypoxia, or lack of oxygen to the brain. The ride’s seven total inversions would last for 60 seconds, starting with tunnel vision, black out, and loss of consciousness. After first or second inversion, the coaster would cause cerebral anoxia, leaving the passengers brain dead.
After the execution ride, the passenger train enters a straight in which the unloading of the brain dead bodies would take place.
Execution Coaster ‘Flagship Exhibition” In Dublin Science Gallery
Transhumanism science organization “HUMAN+” displayed the concept of the Euthanasia Coaster at the Science Gallery in Dublin from April through June 2011. Presented as the flagship exhibition, HUMAN+ said that the ride “highlights the issue inherent in life-extension.” Praising the ride, the stated application of which on the designer’s official site is euthanasia and execution, the director of the Science Gallery Michael John Gorman said it allowed people to leave live in a ‘euphoric state’.
