Hi, first of all i have no experience in electronics or arduino, so willing to start learning. I have a judge dredd lawgiver blaster based on the 1995 movie. I want it to light up like the film and make a sound at the same time. So the idea being that you press a switch and 5 LEDs on each side (10 in total) light up sequentially with about 1/4 of a second or less between time. At the same time it would make an initiation sound, so i will need a speaker connected. When the switch is turned off the power down sound will play and the LEDs will light down in reverse sequence. so based on this info can anyone help me out as to what arduino board i will need as well as other parts for this? I can get one of the coders at my work to maybe help me with the c++ programing as they are dabbling with arduino though look at me blankly when i explain this idea to them.
Any advice or help on this would be much appreciated :)
