EG if you used a Picaxe the following basic code would work.

start:
For B1=1 to 100
high 1
pause 50
low 1
pause 50
next b1

high 1

end

This assumes the LED is on output 1

B1 is an internal variable use to count the for next loop Pause 50 waits for 50 milli seconds.

Method A: Use LEDs and a switch and do it by hand to get the effect you want

Method B. Get a microprocessor (Most common are Arduino and PIC), and write some code to "flicker" the LEDs and have it turn on.
