This autonomous delivery drone can bring residents anything from their mail to FedEx packages to pizza orders. Unlike flying drones, it can carry up to 100 pounds of items and can securely drive down neighborhood sidewalks.

Similar to the autonomous driving robot that Starship Technologies designed, the drone has four compartments that only unlock when the proper code is entered via smartphone mobile app. Designed by a technology start-up, Dispatch Robotics, the driving delivery drone will first be marketed to "private locales," say resorts for instance. The next step will be driving them down public streets straight to people's homes to increase convenience of daily life.

Partnering with things like mail and grocery services, the robot has a lot of potential to partner with existing brands and services.
