    Walmart has applied for a U.S. patent for a warehouse in the sky, which could make deliveries to shoppers' homes with drones.

    CNBC reported that it could be the big-box retailer's latest move to take its e-commerce business to the next level.

    Bloomberg first reported the news Friday, while the patent was first submitted in February.

    The machine, similar to a blimp, could fly as high as 1,000 feet, the application says, and it would be operated either autonomously or remotely by a human pilot.
