4. Fans will soon be back in Chicago's iconic Wrigley Field with the addition of some new technological advances.

Going through security, getting to your seat, and even ordering food will all be different thanks to some new innovations.

Fans will scan themselves in at their designated gate at the time marked on their ticket and proceed to their seat.

Spectators can then use an app or a QR code to order food, keeping them in their seats and watching the game longer.

Management hopes the touchless system will streamline processes that used to lead to crowded areas and long lines.

Lowe's says it will put more details on its Garden To Go Giveaway on its website.
