Razer CEO: Two Prototypes Stolen From Our CES Booth

Razer had some ambitious concepts at CES this year.

Razer has had stuff stolen from them before, as, back in 2011, a pair of experimental Blade prototypes were taken from the company's R & D lab in San Francisco.

Company CEO Min-Liang Tan, confirming the thefts on the last day of the show, said: "We have filed the necessary reports and are now working with the show management as well as law enforcement to address this issue".

Being as big and high profile as they are, it would beggar belief if these are the prototypes which have been stolen, but Tan has been clear that "anyone who would do this clearly isn't very smart". The executive added that "industrial espionage" has not been ruled out. As for the theft, Tan said that the company would treat it very seriously and deemed it as cheating.

As this year's CES wraps up, some bad news came from the CEO of Razer, Min-Liang Tan. Project Valerie was unquestionably one of the most interesting and popular devices on display at CES, and with three 17.3-inch 4K displays, it isn't exactly surprising that it would be a target for thieves. The product was taken from the Razer press room at approximately 4 p.m. on Sunday, January 8, 2017. Additionally, it isn't which prototype devices were stolen at the moment.

A CES thief has made off with some of Razer's incredibly valuable property-two of its triple-display Project Valerie laptops. Project Valerie, for example, was named Best Concept/Prototype of the show, while we also got a glimpse of game-projection prototype Project Ariana.

In a press release, Razer said it "achieved the remarkable abilities of Project Ariana using its Razer Chroma lighting technology and combining it with laser sensors, 4k video projection technology and game code integration in partnership with publishers".
