Turns out, drones are not just for delivering Amazon packages.

Qualcomm Technologies, a tech company that provides 3G and next-gen mobile technologies, unveiled its latest autonomous drones during the CES 2017. The autonomous drones are equipped with 4K cameras that provide 360-degree view, which then gets transited to the driver through a virtual reality headset.

“While the drone is hovering above, you can be driving your car, and looking around to see every side of the road, without mirrors,” said Donald Hutson, an engineer at the Qualcomm Technologies’ research group. This can be especially useful during races, according to Hutson.
