Unveiled on Wednesday, a new Russian monument recognizes Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, says RIA Novosti. Located in the courtyard of the St. Petersburg National Research University of Information Technologies, Mechanics and Optics, the monument is designed to resemble an oversized iPhone, and displays a photo and video slideshow. On the back of it is a QR code, which when scanned by a phone takes people to a commemorative website.

In 2012 the Progress IT Fund held a competition to find a designer for the monument. Over 200 projects were submitted, from which St. Petersburg native Gleb Tarasov's was chosen as the winner. Jobs died of complications from pancreatic cancer on October 5th, 2011, at the age of 56. The moment triggered an outpouring of tributes worldwide, including an official Apple memorial event on October 19th. The executive is typically credited with inventing many of Apple's products, and helping to redefine the music, phone, tablet, and computer industries.
