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 rejected by the selection committee.


An early CAD rendition of Aponem

Aponem was a small, thin, compact, box-shaped robots with a blue frame, four-wheel drive and small wheel guards on either side of it's body. It was armed with a small, narrow, spinning-drum on the front of the robot, sticking out from in front of the body.


Like with all entries of the second series of Dutch Robot Wars, Aponem attended the auditions in 2002, turning up in an incomplete state with a finished chassis and weapons but incomplete armour and internals.

Ultimately, it would not get accepted into the series for unknown reasons.
