LG just demoed its 3D Magic Motion Remote at its CES press conference (watch the live blog here), and it looks like it works a lot like Microsoft's Kinect — it's the same remote we spotted earlier, with the addition of a 3D camera that LG says will allow you to use full-body movements to emulate the functions of the Magic Remote. The slide we're looking at shows someone playing Fruit Ninja, a popular Kinect title, so it certainly seems like LG is working on competing with Microsoft's flagship gaming peripheral.
