Description

The Euthanasia machine, developed by Dr Philip Nitschke in Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia, was the first and only legal euthanasia machine ever made. The machine consists of a laptop computer with the 'Deliverance' programme and a syringe driver. The patient operates the machine via a keyboard. Answering 'yes' to a set of questions releases a fatal drug. The Northern Territory pased a law allowing terminally ill people to end their lives and this machine was developed as a result.
