Design Your Own Boeing 787 Dreamliner

If you've always longed for your own private jumbo jet, well, keep dreaming. But at least Boeing now offers your the chance to design your own hypothetical color scheme, just in case you ever find yourself in a position to buy one.

The online app is surprisingly good fun to play around with for five minutes, letting you choose all kinds of designs, rotate the plane so you don't miss a spot, and, uh, even letting you download your creation as a desktop background.

If you rate yourself that much. Of course, I'm sure you can do far better than the stars'n'stripes effort above, so maybe yours will be worth downloading for keeps. [New Airplane via Engadget]
