RIP Steve Jobs : A 3D Printed Tribute

News in that Steve Jobs has passed away, whether you are an Apple fan or not (there is no in between) Steve has been a pivotal player in the way we interact with technology.  Taking the computer into the broader public realm, redefining the music industry and the way in which we listen to music, changing the cell phone into a portable computing device, even helping to take computer animation into the cinemas and children’s dreams with Pixar.   Following are some designs on Shapeways inspired by Steve Jobs and Apple..

UPDATE: It is a sad day for the Jobs Family and Apple, my thoughts go first to them.  I woke up to the news (in Australia), and thought of all the amazing things Steve Jobs has achieved in and outside of Apple and I really wanted to pay tribute to the amazing work he has done.  I did not intend this to be a sales pitch for designs on the Shapeways site, but to show how he has inspired others to be innovative and creative as well.  Steve jobs has changed the world for many of us, his vision will live on through his achievements, but his presence will be missed.

    Wow, that’s kind of low using a tragedy to promote business, don’t you think?

      I am sorry, I did not mean any disrespect, I just wanted to show that Steve has inspired individuals to design around the products he developed with Apple.
      If it were Bill Gates or Michael Dell there would be little or no designs by individuals on Shapeways.
      He has made an amazing difference to our world, this is evidenced on Shapeways, I just wanted to share this.

      Ok, gotcha. Indeed, he was like a modern day Tesla.

      Thanks Roofoo,

      I have updated the post to better explain myself, it was a bit of a shock to wake up to this morning. As I look around me I see the utter reliance I have on his legacy and am thankful for his vision and execution.

    Steve Jobs did a lot to make computing more accessible to the world.

    I commend him for that.
