This Drone Startup Is Beating Amazon at Deliveries

Oct. 5 -- If you're wondering what the future of shopping will be like, look no further than the outskirts of Reno, where a little startup called Flirtey is working on delivering packages to doorsteps with drones.

But the drone deliveries are made in insulated boxes, so a chili dog and slurpee dropping from the sky to your home is within reach.

Amazon is getting some competition in the drone delivery market.
