With Steve Jobs one of the greatest visionaries of our time has passed away much too soon. Is it because at the time, the former Apple chief to honor with a statue that is to be financed via crowdfunding now? Alex Kennedy thinks so – and keeps a size as the Statue of Liberty possible.

The campaign at Indiegogo will initially contribute $ 50,000 once. If this target is achieved, Kennedy has already ready the best sculptors who then make a statue of the deceased, said to be life-size.

That he might, in the truest sense of the word a monument set for a man who stood equally for innovation and inspiration, and whose personality you would like to honor in this way. He got the idea, of course not exclusively, in Budapest there is already a statue of Steve Jobs:

Steve Jobs 1 So groß wie die Freiheitsstatue: Bekommen die USA eine Steve Jobs Statue?

$ 50,000 and the statue is life-size. The initiator of this campaign says that each additional dollar ensures that you can build the statue larger. He speaks of the Statue of Liberty and even Impetuous: Colossus of Rhodes, one of the seven wonders of the world.

All in all, the Statue of Liberty with almost 93 meters in height but significantly higher than what you get with the estimated $ 50,000 out if you do not want to just waste paper model of the statue. Therefore, I ask the good man simply times that he is more fun with the speech of the Statue of Liberty.

But nonetheless he considered already, where you should set up as a statue. He prefers the Bay Area in San Francisco, but could imagine that that is voted on.

Either way, you can project up to 14 Support October, with her a glossy image of Steve Jobs will get for $ 25, for just under $ 1000 your name will be engraved on the base of the statue. But beware: It will not return any coal if the target is not reached. Incidentally, the project started yesterday – so just a day before the film about Steve Jobs with Ashton Kutcher in the lead role in the U.S. today comes into the cinemas. Random is not safe, right?
