I recently caught up with Michael Buckwald, the CEO of Leap Motion.

For those of you who are not familiar with Leap Motion, the company has created a motion sensing interface that has much greater fidelity than others such as Kinect, Microsoft's popular motion sensing technology.

I wanted to talk to Michael for a couple reasons, the first of which is I'm a big believer in the notion that the way we interface with computers and machines is undergoing a significant upheaval. The other reason is that Leap Motion's technology not only looks really impressive in demos, it's coming out at a really low price point ($69), which means it could result in fairly fast adoption by average consumers for a potentially disruptive technology.

I talk to Michael about the origins of the company, the app developer ecosystem Leap Motion is fostering for the device, the potential apps and use-cases for the technology, the IP landscape for motion sensing and much more.

So if you want to hear about a really interesting technology that could significantly change the way we interface with computers, phones, TV and pretty much any machine, have a listen.
