“We treat theft/larceny, and if relevant to this case, industrial espionage, very seriously”

CES never fails to woo us with the new gadgets and tech it brings. Gaming hardware giant, Razer brought in a couple of their cutting-edge concepts which got a lot of attention. Unfortunately, they also caught the attention of some sticky-fingered showgoers. Two of their products were Nabu-ed nabbed from their CES 2017 booth. CEO Min-Liang Tan posted earlier on Facebook:

“I’ve just been informed that two of our prototypes were stolen from our booth at CES today.”

The company code named these prototypes Project Valerie, and Project Ariana. Valerie is a portable laptop with multiple screens, and Ariana is a projector that adjusts according to the room; Now these products are in no way Orocheap and they are taking this act of thievery Valerie very seriously.

“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.”

Tan also said they have already taken swift action in response to this incident.

“We have filed the necessary reports and are currently working with the show management as well as law enforcement to address this issue.”

It is currently unknown what the motives for stealing could be, but there is one thing for sure; Those thieves have certainly woken the Kraken now.
