It’s maybe not the most cheerful fashion gift, but Swedish textile design student Marjan Kooroshnia‘s swine flu H1N1 masks are quite pretty and cool-looking. Plus, the graphics are done with Thermochromic ink, which apparently means that the masks change color as your body temperature increases or decreases (as demonstrated above). In other words, you may try to conceal your swine flu from the world, but the very mask you hide behind will out you to all those nearby. (Ecouterre)
