We already know this is bullshit made up by a newspaper.

An "anti-gravity motor"? Is it the 25th century yet?

Admit it guys, there has to have been at least one Arab Seikh who, upon reading this article in the paper, put his finger up to his lips and went 'hmmmm....'

it was part of the launch advertising for Damac;s park towers.

sort of 'tommorows lifestyle today' approach.

but it confused everyone as it was written in the same style and font as the rest of the newspaper.
