Arduino controlled tardis light beacon with sound
Ok so I'm exceedingly new to using an arduino micro controller. I actually purchased it specifically for this project, after seeing someones prototype on youtube. I figured, eh how hard could it be? Very... I just can not figure it out. Anyway I'm looking for help with both the circuit and code and I'm willing to find and/or buy just about whatever to get it working. It needs to play the vworp of the engine and make the beacon fade in and out by push button preferably. I have 6 white and 2 blue ultra bright LED's already. A 555 timer, 4700 microfarrad cap, I know I'll need resistors. I also have an old iPod nano 2nd gen I'm willing to sacrifice to the cause if needed, or I'll buy whatever works best. I'm desperate. I have 3 weeks until this light needs to be done, and so far it's a bust.
