Vibration Pillow Project-I Don't Know Where to Start

I had an idea the other day for an Arduino-powered vibration pillow alarm clock.

Ideally, it would consist of a vibration motor (powered by a battery pack), regulated by arduino controlled transistor. The arduino would sync with my Google calendar or my phone's alarm app, probably through a Temboo API. The whole contraption would be placed inside a pillow, where it would shake me awake every morning.

I looked at the S.M.A.R.T. alarm clock, but I didn't need another alarm clock, I just need a remotely activated vibration motor.

Is this possible? Could I do it with a Teensy or an Uno, the only processors I have (and I've never played with the teensy) Also, I am new to arduino coding, so any tutorial suggestions would be welcomed. And, like I said, I'm a total noob, so there's a good chance I used a term wrong. I apologize.
