Aponem was a heavyweight robot built by 15-year old Tom van der Sande with the intention of competing in the second series of Dutch Robot Wars, but was ultimately not selected to compete.

Design[]

An early CAD rendition of Aponem

Aponem was a small, thin, compact, box-shaped robot with a blue frame. It was four-wheel driven and had small wheel guards on either side of its body. It was armed with a small, narrow, spinning drum protruding on the front of the robot, armed with four square teeth. The robot was likely invertible, although it is unknown if Aponem was ever completed.

Qualification[]

Like with all entries for the second series of Dutch Robot Wars, Aponem attended the auditions in 2002, arriving in an unfinished state with a finished chassis and weapons, but incomplete armour and internals. Ultimately, Aponem would not be accepted into the series.
