  • Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZNreveals a new drone that will start test deliveries of toothpaste and household goods weighing as much as five pounds in the coming months.
  • The drone lifts off vertically then speeds forward horizontally like a plane. Unlike other drones that use separate propellers for this action, Amazon's model tilts its body to move horizontally.
  • Packages fit into a pod in the middle of the fuselage, and the drones can fly within a foot of the ground to drop the package on a marked location.
  • The devices will make deliveries within 7.5 miles of a company warehouse and reach customers within 30 minutes.
