After confirming that two prototypes from the company’s booth at CES 2017 was stolen, Razer’s CEO Min-Liang Tan has shared new details on the situation. He confirmed that both stolen prototypes were Project Valerie laptops and not the Project Ariana smart projector device.
He also added that they are now offering a $25,000 reward to anyone who can provide information that would lead to the identification, arrest, and conviction of a criminal suspect. $25,000 is the maximum reward value and depending on the information, it could be lower.
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.
