Combining an N95 mask with a COVID test. The mask changes color if it determines you are exhaling virus.

       OK, how does it change colour?

       A nurse secretly tests you when you are not looking, and then colours in the mask with a permanent marker pen if the result is positive. That would work.

       Amazing idea if you can make it work.

       It just needs built in swabs

       Innovative[+] but it needs to be fleshed out to be more than magic [-]

       [pertinax] apparently all you have to do is to use an 'lac-galactosidase operon as the circuit output to hydrolyze chlorophenol red; D-galactopyranoside'   

       Not sure if they tried this on madks, though...
