Razer’s awesome prototypes at CES 2017 got stolen


The company is offering a reward.

Razer was one of the companies that made full use of CES 2017 showcasing some of the best-looking devices and prototypes that we can expect from the company. Some of these products include the Chrome projector, the awesome Project Ariana and the three-display Project Valerie.

But when the show came to an end, the prototype devices were found stolen from Razer’s booth. Min-Liang Tan, the CEO of Razer confirmed the theft on his Facebook page. “I've just been informed that two of our prototypes were stolen from our booth at CES today. We have filed the necessary reports and are currently working with the show management as well as law enforcement to address this issue,” he said in a post.

“We treat theft/larceny, and if relevant to this case, industrial espionage, very seriously – it is cheating, and cheating doesn’t sit well with us. Penalties for such crimes are grievous and anyone who would do this clearly isn’t very smart,” he added.

It was confirmed that the stolen prototypes were two pieces of Razer’s Project Valerie notebooks that include three 4K-displays that slide out from the main display with a push of a button.

Razer is also offering a $25,000 reward to anyone who can aid in the return of the devices.
