What is the Truth?

When the word ‘ETIMAD’ from the floor mat in the viral video is searched, the same video was found on Youtube dated 5th March 2019 titled ‘Titan the Robot – Etimad’.

It is mentioned in the description that the robot was developed by a British company Cyberstein Robots.

When searched further, “More than 1310 security services based companies participated in Idex 2019 in Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC). The British Company Cyberstein Robots has displayed their ‘Titan the Robot’ in the exhibition”, reported Gulf News in February 2019.

And the person who can be seen in the viral video is not the King of Bahrain, Hamad Bin Isa Al Khalifa.

 

Conclusion

The video that claims that the King of Bahrain is arriving in Dubai with his robot bodyguard that contains 360 cameras and a handgun is fake. The person in the video is not the King of Bahrain. And the robot is developed for entertainment purposes.
