    This is just sad, either way you look at it (Corporate Espionage, or Just joe schmo stealing it). And equally frightening that it could happen at CES and that there is no news on who did it (being the surveillance and other persons that are there).

    I pray that Razer property is returned or found and prosecutions are ensured.

    Well the monitors slide into the the lid, and then its a normal laptop :D Do we even have confirmation it was a prototype of Valerie?

    Can you edit the title? Two prototypes were stolen. It wasn't specified which projects. Could be one of each, or two projectors.
    Quote from your source:

    Tan didn't specify exactly what combination of devices were stolen.

    Agreed.. Although it opens your eyes a little to what people believe was the more "wanted" item. Doesn't it :)

    The prototype actually didnt fold down as of now, and thats why you see all the people asking about how they got it out of there, its like 4.5 feet of screens in a line.

    y they steal it what they steal?
  8. I believe my title was coherent with the source at first, however the source was editied over the course of the day. Nevertheless, I have updated the title and first post.

  10. They stole two prototype devices from the razer stand at CES, unknown reason. Could just be a theif, or it could be corporate espionage.

    I'm sure the press prototypes did, they slide in and out. But it was just sideways they didnt tilt and not with the arm on the display prototype.

    Dam eh im surprised there wasn't someone from Razer or added security around it 24/7 with how much tech like that is worth, not in hardware alone but the RND involved.

    Watch linus's coverage of it, he notes how its a static display as of now.

    Highly doubt it being another video of him "Stealing" a Blade since Min posted about it, rather seriously on Facebook.

    Thrown from my LG G4 to your face by that TapaTalk app.

    Here's hoping that security can identify the thief. I find it hard to believe that this happened. I find it even harder to believe that this wouldn't have been noticed by someone or caught on camera.

    I'm in work so no volume.. I'm assuming your on about the first laptop with the arms on the edges and the tilting. Fair enough.. If you go to about 2 minutes into the video "Razers Top Secret Project" there is a different prototype with a different action to move the screens.. They only slide in or out, no tilting. You can see the think back on it.

    The one Linus states are static, have been said are not operable in that configuration yet. Its just for show.

    While I completely understand the desire to want to be the first person to play with a Razer prototype, the idea of just stealing one is incomprehensible to me. Besides, it's not like there's any way to legitimately make money from it. Once it's listed somewhere people will be all over the seller. Who knows if it's even operational, or just a project display model!

    Just sad. I'm losing faith in much of humanity these days. *shakes head* :confused_:
