British Airways is piloting (ha) new e-ink luggage tags that can be automatically updated with your destination city information for each trip you take. An eco-friendly alternative to those long sticker strips, and no additional infrastructure is needed since the same scanners as are currently used can read these. This will probably make me fly BA whenever it’s time to go to London again. [link]

Suicide by Roller Coaster
This is a hypothetic euthanasia machine in the form of a roller coaster,  engineered to humanely – with elegance and euphoria – take the life of a  human being.

The 3-minute ride involves a long, slow, climb — nearly a third of a  mile long — that lifts one up to a height of more than 1,600 feet,  followed by a massive fall and seven strategically sized and placed  loops. The final descent and series of loops take all of one minute. But  the 10g force from the spinning loops at 223 mph in that single minute  is lethal.

This is nuts. The creator, Designer/Artist Julijonas Urbonas, tells Discovery he doesn’t see his suicide machine as being about death, but as “an intellectual and artful departure from the  world.”
