While we were waiting to hear about Razer’s new three-headed laptop dubbed Project Valerie, the gaming company is now reporting that two of their concept products were stolen from their booth during the last day of this year’s Consumer Electronics Show.
Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan took to Facebook to notify people of the theft: “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.”
Razer didn’t come out and say which of the products were stolen. If it was the Project Valerie laptop, I have no idea how it could’ve been carried out without arousing suspicion. Tan however doesn’t rule out corporate espionage: “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.”
