Saul is Founder and Principal Scientist at Other Lab, where he focuses his work on engineering solutions for energy production and efficiency. Saul first garnered attention as a graduate student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Media Lab, where developed a machine that could mould prescription eyeglass lenses on demand for just a few dollars each. The technology is now being developed by Optiopia, a company he co-founded, to serve the estimated two billion people around the world who do not have access to professional eye care.  Saul has gone on to become the founder or co-founder of a number companies, including Optiopia, Squid Labs, Potenco, Instructables.com, Howtoons and Makani Power, and has received numerous awards for his work in the field. In 2007, he was named a MacArthur Fellow and in 2011 a World Economic Forum Young Global Leader. Saul is a graduate of the University of New South Wales and University of Sydney.
