The Intrepid Sea, Air, & Space Museum in New York City is set to launch a new exhibit that will showcase exciting developments in drone technology.
The exhibition, which will examine the history of drone technology, will also feature the popular 'world's first flying dress' that Lady Gaga worn during a press conference in a warehouse at the Brooklyn Navy Yard in New York in 2013. The flying apparatus, which was called 'Volantis', is an electric-powered hover vehicle that is capable of carrying a single passenger. It was designed by the U.K. based design agency Studio XO and constructed by TechHaus, the Haus of Gaga's technology branch, over a period of two years.
According to a press release by the institution, the museum will allow visitors to explore the possible future technology. "This stunning exhibition will allow visitors of all ages to explore the history of unmanned aircraft, marvel at the cutting-edge designs of today, and be inspired by the future of this ever-evolving technology,” said Susan Marenoff-Zausner, the museum's president.
The exhibit will open inside a pavilion on Pier 86, at West 46th Street, on May 10, 2017.
