For frequent travelers who are not worried about looking a little, um, out-of-the-box, meet Israeli-born designer Sruli Recht's latest "non product" Masked In Flight.

Recht constructed a series of four masks from folded laser-cut parchment, incorporating a respirator and replaceable N95 filters into each. Other features include light filtering sleep masks and sound reduction ear covers.

This product is perfect for a germ-a-phobe like myself, but if I did ever get the courage to whip it out on a trip, how do you get through customs?
