Two of Razer's CES Prototypes Stolen From Show Floor
PC company Razer announced two ambitious-looking prototypes at the Consumer Electronics Show last week, including a laptop with three screens and a smart projector. Project Valerie (the laptop) and Project Ariana (the projector) are pretty eye-catching pieces of technology--and thieves apparently took notice.According to Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan, two of its prototypes were stolen from the company's CES booth over the weekend, though he didn't say which ones. Razer filed police reports and is currently working with CES show management and law enforcement to discuss what comes next. The executive added that "industrial espionage" has not been ruled out.
"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," Tan said.
The executive didn't say which prototypes specifically were stolen.
People who attended CES or have any information about the theft are asked to reach out to Razer at this email: email@example.com. Tan said all information will be "kept in the strictest of confidence."
They aren't talking but I bet someone stole Valerie.
