If you happen to be walking past or through the St. Petersburg National Research University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics’ courtyard over the next few days, you’ll more than likely bump in to a larger-than-life iPhone stood upright. The structure has been placed specifically in memory of Steve Jobs and has a built-in interactive display which allows passers-by access to various parts of Apple’s co-founder’s biography.
On the back of the monument is a QR code which can be scanned by any smartphone which will take you to a page dedicated to Steve Jobs. When it comes to the modern age of technology, there are few who come close to the impact and influence of the late, great Apple CEO. The memorial was placed yesterday, on the 12th anniversary of iTunes and 6 years to the day since Apple first announced the iPhone.
