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 Apples famous co-founder.

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