CES 2017 was a huge hit with companies showcasing innovative new products and prototypes in the arena of the world’s leading consumer tech event that has been making the news ever since it got started. Now that the event got wrapped up we are still getting round up news covering the best of what came forward through the popular tech show.
Likewise, a very established brand Razer that is known for making electronic products for gamers had to face a sad ending where there were two gaming prototypes that won best CES 2017 awards, that were unfortunately got stolen from their booth.
The CEO of the company Min-Liang Tag confirmed it via their Facebook page about the incident as below:
"I've just been informed that two of our prototypes were stolen from our booth at CES today," also mentioning the actions they have taken about the issue, he said: "We have filed the necessary reports and are currently working with the show management as well as law enforcement to address this issue.".
Though there is currently no confirmation as to which exact product got stolen, though it's believed that it could be Project Valerie which was the highlight of what they showcased at the event. This is surely not the first time that such incident would happen, and we knew that previously Blade prototypes went stolen from Raze R&D lab that is placed in San Francisco. Company’s CEO believed that they also consider other competitors spying on their products and in a statement mentioned:
"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."
Overall it was a thrilling experience seeing such immersive products from the company at the tech show. The company also plans to release their smartphone in upcoming years, making their journey quite interesting for the fans.
We hope that Razer continues to bring innovating products for the fans in years to come.
