Prototypes Stolen from the Razer Booth at CES

With all the new exciting and groundbreaking technology coming out, it really is smart to save up the money needed to purchase it be it for necessity or your own personal entertainment purposes. It’s a really sound strategy that’ll pay off. Or in the case of one person, just outright nab an early prototype of said tech from a trade show.

At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, two prototypes of upcoming products were taken from the booth of tech manufacturer, Razer. Company CEO Min-Liang Tan reported this on his public Facebook page. In addition to news and he also mentioned that Razer is working with show management and local law enforcement to handle the issue. Tan also said, “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,” and that whoever did commit the theft wasn’t very smart given that the penalties for a crime such as this are “grievous”.

Tan has also encouraged people that have any info about the theft to contact the legal team of Razer.

It hasn’t been specified what prototypes have been stolen, but I think the smart money would have to be on Project Valerie, a three-screen gaming laptop, which was named the Best Concept/Prototype of CES 2017 and/or Project Ariana, a projector that will project whatever game you’re playing onto an entire wall and keep the central focus on a television.

What do you make of the news? Are you interested in either Project Valerie and/or Ariana? Do you have any Razer products? Let us know in the comments below!
