The last we heard from Amazon regarding their drones, they were still using a model that looked like a slightly enlarged version of a regular consumer drone. Their latest reveal though is nothing like what you’d find in a hobby store.

The new craft, as pictured above, would carry the package inside the fuselage (the body of the craft) rather than beneath the drone. The drone takes off vertically similar to a helicopter before flying straight towards your house. With an impressive range of 15 miles, the drone looks to be the first of a generation of more powerful drones, built for a range of environments; soon the Amazon drone army will be flying through the air delivering anything you need within the hour.

With sensors designed to search for and evaluate possible landing environments, the drone lands, releases your product and then takes back off. Of course, it doesn’t just appear and fly off, with a notification on your Amazon app you’re alerted so you can watch the device drop off your product and be ready to pick it up.

With development centers in the U.S, U.K and Israel you could soon see the drones flying once they receive approval. If that didn’t spark your interest then check out the video below, with none other than Jeremy Clarkson, explaining the details in his usual unique style.
