Lady Gaga has already served as the 'creative director' of at least one major tech company, and now it looks like she's single-handedly ushering in the jetpack-enabled future we've dreamed about for decades.

The boundlessly creative and eccentric star made history this weekend, by turning up to the launch of her new album wearing a dress with a built-in jetpack.

She arrived at the party, held in Brooklyn's Navy Yard, attached to a Volantis airborne jetpack.

Gaga's team of technical inventors ('TechHaus') apparently worked on the dress for two years before its unveiling. And in true Gaga style, it's unlikely to be worn more than once.

"I wanted to make today about something even more important to me. And what that something is the youth of the world. Benjamin and Nancy are here with me today. Their minds are just so boundless," said Gaga, enigmatically.

"I will be a vehicle today for their voices... Youth all over the world."
