This past week was the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, where tons of companies showcase their upcoming products and prototypes for the year. Razer was among those who showcased several new products, not least of which was a three-screen laptop prototype called Project Valerie.

The massive display features three screens that fold out from one another, providing a cinematic gaming experience while on the go. While the laptop showcased at the show was only a prototype, it appears that it was so popular that two of the prototypes were literally stolen from the Razer booth.

CEO Min-Liang Tan confirmed the news via a Facebook post and let fans know that they’re looking for the culprit who made off with the two laptops.

“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.

We were on hand at CES this year to check out what Razer was showcasing and it was unbelievable to see the prototypes up close. You’ll notice those screens are pretty thin and while the base of the laptop is mostly just a Razer Blade, when the laptop is actually folded in on itself it’s not that much thicker than older laptops.
