All the message from Las Vegas’ CES 2017 has been revealed and discussed now, but the show keep ons to shock—and not in a good way. Razer’s CEO Min-Liang Tan disclosed in a Facebook post that two of the band’s prototypes were stolen from its CES booth. While Tan did not say which models were taken, Razer built its CES presence around its Project Valerie triple-display laptop example and its Project Ariana Chrome-lighting smart projector prototype.
According to Tan’s promulgate, Razer has already filed the necessary paperwork to report the stolen means, and the company is working with CES officials and law enforcement to address this felony. While Tan didn’t say if they already had any leads, he did address the possibility of this pocketing being industry-related. «We treat theft/larceny, and if relevant to this pack, industrial espionage, very seriously,» Tan wrote. «It is cheating, and cheating doesn’t sit incredibly with us. Penalties for such crimes are grievous and anyone who would do this manifestly isn’t very smart.»
Razer has been the victim of theft before. In 2011, two laptop instances were stolen from a Razer office in San Francisco—those outdid up being early prototypes of the Razer Blade. Project Valerie is a larger-than-life laptop with three built-in puts, two of which fan out from the central panel. Project Ariana is a 4K projector that, when aciform at a TV or gaming monitor, can sense the edges of that display and use room’s luminous to extend the game’s field of view onto the walls. Since these are archetypes, there’s no guarantee Project Valerie or Project Ariana will even hit shelves.
