A video allegedly showing a massive robot entering a public venue in Dubai, UAE has gone viral; after claiming that it shows the robot used by the Bahraini King as a bodyguard.

The robot was described as being equipped with 360-degree cameras and built-in pistols to provide the ultimate protection for the King of Bahrain Hamad bin Issa Al Khalifa. 

However, the video that impressed users of social media doesn't exactly describe what it claims.

While the video was actually filmed in the UAE business-capital, Dubai, the King of Bahrain has nothing to do with the robot seen marching through the hall. In fact, the short video was taken in a Dubai exhibition featuring Titan the Robot, which has appeared on several occasions in the GCC country.

The 8-feet robot suit was developed by the British-based company Cyberstein and first appeared in the English Glastonbury Festival in 2004.

In addition to the robot having the Emirati flag attached on his shoulder, the King of Bahrain was not present in this event, neither did he ever announce including a robot in his security team.
