Six Flags Fiesta Texas in San Antonio is unveiling the first ever 4D roller coaster.
Named BATMAN: The Ride, the coaster will send riders into the 4th dimension as they do summersaults six times, which creates a weightless environment. Riders are strapped into cars that spin independently of the track. So as they cruise down the track, their seats can spin and make them go head over heels.This is the first-ever ride to be engineered in this way. The ride is based on the Batman comic and is supposed to make riders feel like they're flying.
It is schedule to open next summer.

The most-funded kickstarter campaign right now is the Coolest Cooler which has raised a total of $11.2 million. (the initial goal was $50,000) The cooler features a blender, waterproof bluetooth speaker, USB charger, storage space, a bottle opener a cutting board, a lid that’s lit by an LED light, and a rechargeable battery.
It has 60 quarts of space and has two extra wide tires to make it easier to move across the beach.
The man who invented the cooler said he came up with the idea when he tried to put an old car stereo in a cooler. The cooler is scheduled to be released in 2015 for $299. However if you pledge $185, you get $100 off the retail price. (so, then it will end up costing you a total of $384 if you spend money to support the cooler’s kickstarter)
Today is the final day for the Coolest Cooler campaign.

Here's a new map on the web that shows which college football team is the most popular in each state. Courtesy of TicketCity, which used social metrics, Google analytics, and ticket pricing data to determine which college football teams were loved the most in each state.
It pretty much resembles at U.S. Map. Minnesota’s favorite college football team is Minnesota. Wisconsin is Wisconsin. That trend continues in Iowa, with the Hawkeyes as the state’s favorite.
**Look close and you’ll see that Alaska and Vermont do not have a favorite.
