Hi I am a beginner.

I would like to make something that will do the following.
press a button - sound clips play. then after a set time interval the power to a socket powering a light switches off. then after a set time interval another socket powering a smoke machine switches on for a short period of time. Then finally the power to the original socket turns on bringing the lights back on.
What would be the best way to do this? would it be an arduino with relays? or pic controller?

If i then wanted to make the above into a 4d cinema so it powers up a projector and plays a video file would i be better using something like a raspberry pi that can play video files itself? I would want everything to operate with a press of a button though and do not want to load programs up manually etc.

Thanks for your help

The MotherBone™PiOne™ came into existence when design
engineers at APlus Mobile were evaluating BeagleBone Black and Raspberry Pi as
a solution for low cost control systems.

APlus Mobile technical staff designed and developed an interface board, the
MotherBone™PiOne™ as an all-in-one 3.5" peripheral voltage isolating
motherboard for the BeagleBone Black and Raspberry Pi Model B computers that
expands and isolates all of the unused default pins of the BeagleBone Black
internal resources. In addition, MotherBone™PiOne™ creates two different
on-board communication links between Raspberry Pi and BeagleBone Black for
advanced control functions allowing both modules to run individually or
simultaneously in the real world.

APlus Mobile is happy to share this interface board with other open sourced
inventors. The MotherBone™PiOne™ is now available on Kickstarter
