Thumper1

Crude Thumper

A thumper is a short stake with a spring-loaded clapper on one end. With the catch released, the thumper would pound repeatedly. It was used to summon a sandworm on the planet Arrakis.

Some thumpers also had a candle, which, when lit, would last for approximately one hour. After the candle burned out, the catch would automatically be released, and the thumper would begin to pound.


Although there aren't any real thumper devices, the closest thing is an iPhone Application called iThumper, that simulates the thumper's sounds and light flashes.
