Truth : King of Bahrain Is Not Protected By A Robot Bodyguard!
This is yet another example of FAKE NEWS created and propagated on WhatsApp and social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter, and here are the reasons why…
Fact #1 : Video Was Recorded In Abu Dhabi, Not Dubai
The video does not show the King of Bahrain arriving in Dubai. It was recorded on 19 February 2019, at the 2019 International Defense Exhibition (IDEX) in Abu Dhabi.
While both Dubai and Abu Dhabi are in the UAE (United Arab Emirates), they are separate emirates. Dubai is about an hour’s drive away from Abu Dhabi.
Fact #2 : That Is Not The King of Bahrain
The man seen in the video walking in front of the robot is not the King of Bahrain, Shaikh Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa.
Fact #3 : Titan Is Adorned With UAE Flags, Not Bahrain
If you look carefully, Titan is adorned with UAE flags, not the flag of Bahrain. That’s because it’s being exhibited in the UAE.
If this was really the robot bodyguard of the King of Bahrain, it would have been adorned with the flag of Bahrain, not the flag of the UAE.
Fact #4 : That Is Titan The Robot
The robot behind him isn’t the man’s bodyguard, never mind the bodyguard of the King of Bahrain. It is called Titan the Robot, and it was made by a British company called Cyberstein, as the world’s first entertainment robot!
The world-famous Titan the Robot is the ultimate family entertainment show and Titan’s comedic antics are adored by children and adults alike.
Titan’s show can also be easily adapted to any situation and works very well as corporate entertainment or for enticing clients to your exhibition stand.
Fact #4 : Titan The Robot Is A Costume With A Person Inside
Titan the Robot isn’t even a real robot, but is really a humanoid robot costume worn by a human actor who moves its appendages, and controls electronic functions like light and sound effects.
Needless to say, Titan does not have any machine guns, or sniper rifles, or tasers hidden inside. Only a human being. In fact, the costume only weighs 60 kg!
Fact #5 : Titan The Robot Is Not For Sale
Cyberstein does not sell Titan because it needs an actor to use the costume, but anyone can book it to perform at family, corporate and international events!
Titan the the Robot is based in the UK, but he is available worldwide and has performed in over 50 countries to date. Titan’s show can be configured for any kind of event and the footfall he creates in shopping malls is legendary.
Cyberstein has never stated how much Titan the Robot costs, but it is ludicrous to claim that a robot costume would cost US$7.4 million.
Fact #6 : Titan The Robot Is Over 18 Years Old!
While the viral posts suggest that this is a new robot bodyguard that the King of Bahrain purchased for an exorbitant price, Titan the Robot is over 18 years old!
Titan made its first appearance at the 2004 Glastonbury Festival on 25-27 June, and was 18 years old when it performed at Britain’s Got Talent.
There is nothing really high-tech about it, being developed in the early 2000s. It certainly does not have any Industrial Revolution 4.0 features!
