It’s unlikely that Steve Jobs is either looking up or looking down upon the world he left in 2011. But if he is, I’m sure he’s running around in some sort of delusional panic.
You can debate the legacy of Steve Jobs until you’re blue in the face, but you’d be fighting a losing battle if you said that his products aren’t beautiful. Just take a look at your iPhone–It’s sleek, fluid, and there’s not a wasted component anywhere.
Take a look at your iPhone again. Now, take a look at this statue of Steve Jobs that’s about to go up in Cupertino:

What the shit?
According to Apple Insider (via Netokracija), this is the Steve Jobs memorial statue that’s set to adorn the halls of the company’s Cupertino HQ. That’s actually a scaled-down model recently unveiled in Belgrade, but the full 3-5 meter statue will look like that when completed.
The artist, sculptor Dragan Radenović , beat out over 10,000 entries in a contest to design the statue. Apparently, Apple liked its “imperfections.”
If you’re wondering, the odd-looking appendages above the binary numerals are Cyrillic letters.
I’d like to think that it’s actually some kind of special key to the room where they keep the iPhone prototypes. Yes, let’s go with that.
