Amazon reckons a new drone delivery system could be up and running in five years time.
The Octocopters would pick up items from their warehouses, known as "fulfillment centres", in small yellow buckets and fly them through the air using electric motors.
Packages could be delivered within 30 minutes.
Chief Executive of Amazon Jeff Bezos, told the CBS '60 Minutes' show that there would be a limit to what the drone could do.
He said: "For these generations of vehicles it could be a 10-mile radius from a fulfillment centre. So for urban areas they actually could cover a very significant portion of the population.
"It won't work for everything, we're not going to deliver kayaks ot table saws."
Bezos said there is still some work to do before the drones are up and running.
