LED Level (NI Week)

Create an LED level using an accelerometer. The myRIO has an onboard accelerometer, 4 built in LEDs, and a button which will can be used to create a level along the Y-axis. The LEDs can indicate how far from level the device is and in which direction a user should rotate it to make it level. (Assume the X and Z axis are stable). The myRIO has 4 onboard LEDs. How can you best use them to accomplish this?
