NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) – Lady Gaga has taken yet another leap up the superstardom scale with what she bills as the world’s first flying dress.

On Sunday, the “Applause” singer unveiled a high-tech, white vehicle that lifted her up inside a mammoth building at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, a defunct shipyard developed for commercial use.

The contraption has six booms in a hex formation and is powered by batteries.

The 27-year-old New York entertainer said later that this was “maybe a small step for Volantis” — as she calls the metal dress — but “a big-time step” for Lady Gaga.

Her ultimate goal, she says, is to stage the first musical performance from space.

Meanwhile, a temporary art exhibit titled “Artpop Pop Up: Lady Gaga Gallery” opened Monday to celebrate the release of her third album “ARTPOP.”

The three-day exhibit on 417 West 14th Street will be open from 12 p.m. – 9 p.m. through Wednesday.
