In anticipation of her new album, ARTPOP, Lady Gaga plans to reach new heights, literally. As part of ArtRave, Gaga’s fashion, music, art, and tech mash-up party tonight in a Brooklyn warehouse, Gaga will soar above her audiences in a flying dress called VOLANTIS.
VOLANTIS was conceived by Studio XO in Gaga’s TechHaus. It has six booms in a hex formation and is powered by 50 volt batteries. The dress also has a carbon fiber molded casket designed to mimic a fitted couture dress. This futuristic machine will make Gaga fly.

UPDATE NOV. 10 6:58 P.M. ET: Gaga lifts off!
