In what some are already calling an embarrassment for security measures at CES and Razer, two Razer prototypes were stolen straight off the CES 2017 show floor. When we say they were stolen, we mean someone cut the cords and were able to get them out of the building.
Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan released the following statement of his Facebook page…
“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.
At Razer, we play hard and we play fair. Our teams worked months on end to conceptualize and develop these units and we pride ourselves in pushing the envelope to deliver the latest and greatest.
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.
If you were at the show and/or if you can provide us any information, please do reach out to us at [email protected] – all information provided will be kept in the strictest of confidence.”
Razer did not reveal which prototypes were stolen.
