A branch of the famous Museum Madame Tusso in San Francisco will join a new wax figure. This time one of the figures associated with the world of IT technologies. In a survey of “technological icon” is recognized as the Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak.
Although for most Apple fans the main figure is Steve jobs, former Vice-President Wozniak, or just the Who, the engineer to the bone is one of those who owns many inventions of the company. He wrote most of the software and oversaw research and development at Apple. Wozniak developed the drive for the Apple II computer.
Between the two Stivali had an uneasy relationship: his school friend Steve jobs was known rigid manners and style of communication with employees.
Wozniak and jobs became a millionaire after apparent today so unprepossessing Apple II was released to the U.S. market in 1977. Himself Wozniak left the company after a disaster on a private business jet in 1981. The doctors had him literally in pieces, he experienced retrograde amnesia.
In April, the Madame Tussauds has launched a poll to find out who submitted the list of the people should become “technological icon” and be reincarnated in the form of sculptures made of waste product of bees. Online voting, among the candidates who were Wozniak, Elon Musk and Larry page, took place during the month. By late summer, the Apple co-founder will join the company of wax Steve jobs and Mark Zuckerberg.
“I’m glad to be a part of the family of Madame Tussauds. I remember as a child, I went to the London Museum and his impressions of the wax figures Mark Knopfler – commented Wozniak voting results. Can’t wait to see your figure next to the jobs. Just like old times.”
The Madame Tussauds was founded 200 years ago by sculptor Marie Tussaud. It has branches in 20 cities.
