UPDATE: Razer has confirmed that it was indeed those epic three display laptops that were stolen.
A Facebook post from Razer’s CEO Min-Liang Tang has revealed that two of the prototypes showcased by Razer during CES 2017 have reportedly been stolen. Though the CEO does not specify which products have been stolen from Razer’s booth at CES, we suspect he might be referring to Project Valerie, the three screened gaming Laptop and Project Ariana, a unique video projection system designed for immersive gaming.

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 [email protected] – all information provided will be kept in the strictest of confidence.
This is very unfortunate news and we hope the prototypes can be recovered swiftly.
