Do you want blinky lights or something actual 'mind control'?

As for the lights, a 4017 decade counter + 555 timer IC would easily perform this task.

'4017 10 stage led sequencer'

the 555 pulses which increments the output of the decade counter. If you want 1 2 3 4 off off off off off off (for the delay) you can hook one of the outputs to the reset pin on the decade so the delay is longer or shorter, For example, if you hook the 6th output to reset, you get 1 2 3 4 off 1 2 3 4 off (etc)

+1 Gotta love the 4017 and its "fully decoded outputs". It counts the way humans do, on the outside...

Any chance to make with a PIC microprocessor? I'm looking after the schematics, but I had no luck until now.
