Julijonas Urbonas - Euthanasia Roller Coaster

"Urbonas describes the experience of riding his "hypothetic euthanasia machine" thusly: "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 consciousness, and, eventually, death... Celebrating the limits of the human body but also the liberation from the horizontal life, this ‘kinetic sculpture’ is in fact the ultimate roller coaster." It's like something out of the biting sci-fi satire film Idiocracy, except it's backed up by "advanced cross-disciplinary research in space medicine, mechanical engineering, [and] material technologies."
