St. Petersburg university pays tribute to Steve Jobs

23 Jan '13
A monument in memory of Steve Jobs was unveiled earlier this month in the yard of the St. Petersburg National Research University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics (ITMO), East-West Digital News, the international resource on Russian digital industries, reported yesterday.

The monument, which is about the size of a man, represents an iPhone 4, and is equipped with an interactive touch screen that displays highlights of Jobs’ biography along with photos and videos of Apple’s famous co-founder.

The initial design included a sophisticated “solar QR code,” explained artist Gleb Tarasov, who created the piece. But due to the city’s cloudy weather, the feature works independently from daylight – the QR code is simply linked to a website dedicated to Jobs.
