Title: Freaky Japan
Post by: Akenu on October 20, 2015, 01:16:07 AM
So, in Japan they invented a suicide robot named Seppukuma (seppuku means a suicide, kuma is a bear). It can lift up to 80kg (176 lbs) and allows you to choose many different types of suicides, from lethal injection, through pillow suffocation up to strangling you to death. Original prototypes were called off because some beta testing patients were left horribly disfigured, yet still alive by the HAIRAKUMA-II

Let's dedicate this thread to all weird stuff going on in Japan :)
