2013 will go down as the year that Apple did its best to steal coverage from CES (although the company does try to sneak in some rumors every year.) We've already had the saga of the "cheap iPhone
", which won't go away
, and now the Apple faithful are joining in to help by unveiling an interactive iPhone 5-shaped memorial to Steve Jobs in St. Petersburg, Russia. There are plenty around the world that consider themselves Apple fans, but this takes it up a notch.
The memorial is 6 feet tall, and has a screen on the front which shows photos and videos of key moments in Jobs' life with text descriptions translated into multiple languages. The rear of the memorial doesn't have the iconic Apple logo, instead it has a QR code which will bring visitors to a website dedicated to the life of Jobs.
The design was chosen from 200 submissions. The winning design comes from St. Petersburg native Gleb Tarasov, whose design was named 'Sunny QR Code'.
