ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: A drone exhibition showcases how the unmanned aircraft has evolved and continues to evolve over time, in an event called "Drones: Is the Sky the Limit?" at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York City. "I want them to walk away kind of giddy and really realize that drones are serving purposes around the world, both in the military, in the civilian world, in the science world, in the arts, and pretty soon they're going to be used like taxi cabs and you're not going to have a driver, you're going to have this little flying drone show up and take you to your destination some day," said Eric Boehm, co-curator of the exhibit and curator of aviation at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum. "So yeah, be giddy about it because drones are here to stay." The event explores the history of drones to featuring current day drone applications and concept drones in the future. Also on display to the public for the first time is "VOLANTIS," pop diva Lady Gaga's "flying dress" from 2013. Gaga was strapped into the contraption that rose a few feet off the ground and propelled her forward. "Drones: Is the Sky the Limit?" at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum runs from May 10 through Dec. 3.
