The video has been watched thousands of times online. Unfortunately, as much as we’d love this robot bodyguard concept to be true, – robot bodyguards are certainly not in the works anywhere in the world right now.
The King of Bahrain was not featured in the video which was actually taken during a security exhibition last year.
The United Arab Emirate (UAE) national flag can be seen on the robot’s arm and shoulder.
The video was recorded during the IDEX security exhibition last year, held at Dubai International Financial Center.
The robot in questions is called ‘Titan’ and is a regular figure at many of Dubai’s trade expos. Titan is the world’s first commercial entertainment robot artist, which was developed by British company Cyberstein.
