Lady Gaga's flying dress looks like a giant drone
Lady Gaga achieves liftoff with the Volantis flying dress, a fashion contraption that won't fit through most doors.
, but she's keeping busy with some flights closer to the ground as well. Her new Volantis flying dress is the latest in a stream of unusual outfits. Gaga demonstrated the fashionable flying machine at a recent event in Brooklyn, New York, where she promoted her new "ARTPOP" album and related pop-up stores in New York and Los Angeles.
Gaga showed up wearing a white flight suit that made it look like she was arriving for her first day at space camp. Naturally, she shed the bulky flight suit to reveal a more Gaga-esque skin-tight outfit for the Volantis dress test flight.
Assistants strapped Gaga into the six-rotor "dress-copter" and sent her hovering a few feet above the ground. She was wearing a helmet just in case the machine decided to run amok.
The dress appears to work on the same principle as RC-controlled multirotor drones, just on a larger scale. It was created by TechHaus, which is billed as the technical division of the Haus of Gaga.
Volantis obviously works as a hovering craft, but its practicality as a dress is in question. It's too big to wear any place except outside or in a large warehouse. She definitely won't be able to squeeze it into a seat at the Grammy awards.
The only thing that could make Volantis cooler would be to combine it with theso that Lady Gaga could descend into your front yard with a hot pizza delivery.
