Business pitch:
Tech Bro: "We aim to disrupt suicide".
Investor: "You want to offer interventions that prevent suicide?"
Tech Bro: "Nah dude. We want to mash up 3D printing and AI to allow people to kill themselves in popular tourist locations"

This picture of the suicide pod dropped in a field in the middle of nowhere is kind of unnerving.

I suppose maybe some people live in those houses in the background. Or at least they did until the pod showed up.

How much does it cost?

I can see a business opportunity for people who live in truly beautiful, remote places...

Having now read the article, I'm expecting a bit more variety to show up in my ad feed.

It looks like it's built to be backed up to a hole and then eject the pod into the hole.  A volcano would be perfect for this.

Looks a little small for the average American. They're gonna have to make it at least XXL here.

The pod can be activated from inside and can give the person intending to die various options for where they want to be for their final moments. "The machine can be towed anywhere for the death,"

Did the Swiss just accidentally make a death penalty capsule for Texas?

I was thinking certain areas of the Alaskan interior.  With the added bonus that disposal of the remains would be extremely simple, what with the bears, eagles, ravens, etc.

I've never been to Alaska but will go there someday. I think bears and eagles would have a hard time with the capsule. Leave it in Detroit and it will be stripped down within 20 minutes.

If I get really sick and in pain, or senile like my mother, I would totally want to use this.
