I saw a kickstarter project that was similar to this (ramosclock). Since I never watched Lost, I imagine that was the inspiration for that as well. Or just people like my daughter and I that annoy everybody around us because it takes so long to wake up. ]Any way, it is generally useful to try and break the project down into several smaller steps, and do them in sequence. Given you've built most of the hardware, it is hard to say where to begin. Maybe, you could describe what you've built, and what needs to be done in the Arduino.
