The 404 1,144: Where we switch up our 'za (podcast)

New York is about to get a lot more scannable, thanks to a law passed by the City Council earlier this month requiring restaurants and bars to post QR codes that lead to more details about health-code infractions. This plus 3D-printed headphones, a device to call your Mom after a bike crash, and a jacket that gives you a hug every time someone "Likes" your Facebook post on today's episode of CNET's The 404!
