Using LED's an Accelerometer and Voltage Regulators with the Uno

Hi guys,

I’m a complete beginner at both programming and circuitry so I’d really like some sound advice on my project!

I’m making an ‘Artist Book’ on digital designs. The book itself resembles a hard drive.

I wanted to add some interactivity by having the logo on the cover light up when the user lifts it or moves it.

So far I have an accelerometer (ADXL335), 2 Voltage regulators and an Arduino uno to complete this task.

I’d like to know:

how feasible this idea is,

whether I could complete it before the beginning of May

what kind of LED’s are most powerful, cost effective and require no ventilation

how I would go about coding the arduio to carry out this function.

Any advice at all would be greatly appreciated.
