Boeing has revealed a new cargo drone that can lift 500 pounds of goods. This sucker is pretty dang big and weighs 747 pounds. It has four arms with two props each and Boeing managed to get this vehicle from design to prototype in just 3 months. Drones like these are going to make local delivery of mass quantities of goods a regular everyday task without clogging up the roads. Hopefully we'll see more of these as time goes on. Check it out in the video.

"This flying cargo air vehicle represents another major step in our Boeing eVTOL strategy," said Boeing chief technology officer Greg Hyslop in a statement. "We have an opportunity to really change air travel and transport, and we’ll look back on this day as a major step in that journey."
