Wanting to build an led drag racing christmas tree game to install on a can crusher I'm building. I am pretty good in the shop but, very new and eager, to learn electronics. Here Goes.....

The outputs are prewired LEDS 12v with resistors

Total of 7 outputs: output 1 and 2= 80mA each
: output 3 thru 7= 40mA each

2 inputs: photocell and momentary push button

Circuit at rest = output 1 on and photocell lighted

Procedure:
Step 1: photocell gets covered output 1 turns off
Step 2: output 2 on for 2 seconds then off
Step 3: output 3 on for .5 seconds then off
Step 4: output 4 on for .5 seconds then off
Step 5: output 5 on for .5 seconds then off
Step 6: output 6 on for 1 second then off
Step 7: output 7 on until photocell is lit then its back to rest

Note: Pushing the momentary button during steps 2-5 will skip it to step 7.
Pushing the button during step 1 or 7 will have no effect.
Pushing the button during step 6 will stay at step 6 until photocell is lit and then its back to circuit at rest.
The photocell getting lit up will return it back to rest

I am looking for what material I need to order to build this thing and how.

Thank You in advance,

Jay

There are a *lot* of different ways to do this. I'd probably suggest something like a Diavolino board, with transistors on its outputs to drive the 12V LEDs.

After researching a number of different ways to do this, I really like the DIY and simplicity of the Diavolino board kit. Questions..... what transistors and where to solder them, what photocell would generate an instant response and so on. That being said, I am really looking for a how to, and the parts I need, to do this. I feel that this is a great introduction to my future hobby! Wink Just need a little help to get started. Btw just ordered a book called electronics for dummy's.

Thanks
