Razer Project Valerie

At CES 2017, gaming hardware company Razer displayed the new prototype for their gaming laptop line. Razer is well known for their gaming hardware, software and equipment.

We have many of their gaming peripheral reviews here at Craving Tech such as their latest Razer DeathAdder Elite gaming mouse, which I use extensively at the moment to play Overwatch competitively.

Project Valerie” was introduced by Razer at CES. The new gaming laptop turned heads as they premiered the first laptop to have 3 built in 17.3-inch 4K displays. Despite the laptops only being a prototype, two of the display prototypes were stolen from the Razer booth.

Razer CEO, Min-Liang Tan, released a statement on Facebook acknowledging the incident. He added that they are working with law enforcement and the event management to address the issue.

He claims that the “Project Valerie” prototypes were taken around 4pm on Sunday January 8th. Razer has stated there is a $25,000 reward  “for original information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of a criminal suspect.”

Razer also officially released the following statement regarding the reward:

“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 [email protected]

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.”

At CES 2017, Razer was turning heads with their bold new products, “Project Valerie” as well as “Project Ariana” which is a prototype for a “room-scale” projector.
