During the CES 2017 trade show, Razer showcased a prototype version of the world's first triple display laptop called Project Valerie, alongside a projection system that is designed to make gaming more immersive called Project Ariana. And although it is extremely difficult to steal a prototype, that has just happened.
The company's CEO, Min-Liang Tan, posted on Facebook that two of their prototypes were stolen from their booth at CES 2017. The CEO has not dismissed this being a case of industrial espionage, so this could be a very interesting case. Read the whole post below:
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. At Razer, we play hard and we play fair. Our teams worked months on end to conceptualize and develop these units and we pride ourselves in pushing the envelope to deliver the latest and greatest. 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. If you were at the show and/or if you can provide us any information, please do reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org - all information provided will be kept in the strictest of confidence.
