Suicide Chamber That Works By Blinking The Eyes Has Been Approved


A machine that allows people to kill themselves, made by Dr. Philip Nitschke, “Dr. Death,” has been approved to be used in Switzerland.

The coffin-shaped capsule, called the Sarco machine, is operable from the inside. It performs by decreasing the oxygen level in the pod tremendously.

If a person experiences locked-in syndrome, they just have to blink their eyes for the machine to work.

An individual is given a liquid barbiturate drug that puts them in a deep coma in about two to five minutes. This enables a person to pass away “peacefully and painlessly.”

The Sarco machine, short for sarcophagus, is made to be taken wherever a person chooses, preferably an outdoor area. The environment-friendly capsule can then come apart and be used as a coffin.

The device has been criticized because the way it uses gas similar to how it was used in the Holocaust. It also has a virtual feature that allows people to experience  their own death. Critics add that the capsule’s innovative design seems to make suicide “glamorous.”
