Matthew Laux


I'm currently studying computer science at the University of Texas. My first computer, given to me by my uncle at age six, was a Toshiba T4700CT. While my friends were playing outside, I was playing with QBASIC. I think I turned out okay though.

Right now I'm into Android development and restoration of old Apple products. I am the lead developer of oculr, an Android app that allows students to scan equations using their phone's camera and retrieve information about how to solve them. It's like an image search for WolframAlpha and Khan Academy.

When I'm not staring at a screen I'm either wandering around Austin or busy with my soldering iron and oscilloscope. I also love to swim and bike. Someday, I'll live in a house of my own design in a quaint Silicon Valley or Austin neighborhood.

Here's my résumé if you are looking for that.

All pictures were taken with a Minolta XG1 camera. The color pictures used Kodak Ektar 100 film and were developed at Walgreens. The B&W pictures used Kodak Tri-X 400 or expired Ilford FP4 and were developed at home. All photos were scanned on an Epson scanner.
