I dunno... it just doesn't have the flair of the MomCorp Stop-N-Drop booth...
In all seriousness though, this iPad of self termination is all very well, with its sleek design and all, but I cannot help but feel its utterly unnecessary to use all these materials to achieve what could be done with a syringe and a working knowledge of pharmacology, without the necessity to have a machine of any kind be involved. If a person now has the right to decide to die, then surely administering a lethal dose of something to the patient with as little fuss, drama, or material expense as possible, makes a damned sight more sense than putting them in a sealed machine, cutting them off from the world before they have even left it?

I can think of a few people who would have loved to have one of these to stop the incredible suffering they went through to die.
Nitschke Is the Elon Musk Of Assisted Suicide
The new chamber was revealed by Philip Nitschke from Australia, and he has been called the “Elon Musk of assisted suicide”. The machine was revealed this week, and this was just a few days after lawmakers in Victoria had a vote on legalizing euthanasia. The device is said to simplify what Nitschke calls “rational suicide” and makes sure that the whole process of suicide is easy and very painless and is what he says is the optimal way to die.
It is a neat design..... all they are doing is replacing the oxygen in the chamber with nitrogen.. You pass out shortly and within a few minutes your are dead.. End of story or a new chapter begins; whatever ?
Assisted suicide is now legal in Canada, Colombia, Belgium, Luxemburg and the Netherlands, along with Victoria, now that the new law is in place. In the United States, only patients that are terminally ill are able to take the suicide route. In numerous states, two doctors have to verify how legitimate the request is.
