Experimental models of one of gaming’s most hotly anticipated products appear to have been stolen at this year’s CES tech expo in Las Vegas.
Two Project Valerie prototype gaming laptops from gaming company Razer were taken from its booth Sunday afternoon, reports Engadget.
Each of these laptops boasts three built-in 17-in. 4K displays that automatically slide in place when the device is opened, according to tech website Polygon.
The company’s founder, Tan Min-liang, announced the news Monday in a post on Facebook and lambasted the potential theft as “cheating.”
“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,” he wrote, adding that Razer “worked months on end to conceptualize and develop these units.”
The company has reported the theft to police and is offering $25,000 for information leading to the culprits.
