Hello, and welcome!


If you're using piezos as vibration sensors, I'd suggest 1 10k resistor and 1 3V3 Zener diode per sensor, both bridging the two leads (not sure which direction the diode should face, it's been a while). As for the lights, LEDs work just fine, string several of them together, possibly using transistors to do current switching. I'm sure others on here would know more about that.


Best of luck, and be sure to post pictures when you're done! :)
