The last ride: Euthanasia Coaster is a "hypothetical euthanasia machine in the form of a roller coaster engineered to humanely – with elegance and euphoria – take the life of a human being. Riding the coaster’s track, the rider is subjected to a series of intensive motion elements that induce various unique experiences: from euphoria to thrill, and from tunnel vision to loss of conscious ness, and, eventually, death. Thanks to the marriage of the advanced cross-​​disciplinary research in aeronautics/​space medicine, mechanical engineering, material tech­nologies and, of course, gravity, the fatal journey is made pleasing, elegant and meaningful."
