Yesterday I wrote that two prototypes from Razer got stolen at CES. At the time, it was unclear what got stolen but most people assumed it would be either Project Valerie and/or Project Ariana.
In a message to the press, Razer confirms it were indeed two Project Valerie laptops that got stolen. The prototypes were stolen from the Razer press room around 4 p.m. on Sunday, January 8, 2017. A police report has been filed and the company is working with both CES management and law enforcement to recover its stolen property.
Furthermore, Razer is offering a $25,000 reward if you have information that can lead to the identification, arrest and conviction of the thief:
“This note is to confirm that two Razer Project Valerie laptop prototypes were stolen from the Razer booth at CES. The product was taken from the Razer press room at approximately 4 p.m. on Sunday, January 8, 2017. A $25,000 reward is being offered for original information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of a criminal suspect. Razer, in its sole discretion, will decide who is entitled to a reward and in what amount. Razer may pay only a portion of the maximum reward offered. The decision will be based primarily upon law enforcement's evaluation of the value of the information provided. When there are multiple claimants, the reward will be shared in amounts determined by Razer. Razer associates are not eligible for the reward. This reward offer is good for one year from the date it is first offered, unless extended by Razer. Information about the theft can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Razer will not publicly disclose material that it receives or details about respondents, except to those persons with whom Razer is directly working to resolve this matter or as may be required by law.”
You can view Project Valerie below, it's a prototype of world's first gaming laptop with three displays:
