Would an arduino unoArduino Uno be suitable for a simple time based-based locking circuit?

Background: I'm looking to start on my first real electronics project and I have an arduino unoArduino Uno I bought a while back. I've only done a few of the starter arduinoArduino tutorials and that was a while back as well. Starting from very little electronics knowledge, I'm trying to get a bit of advice on how to tackle my first project. TL;DR: TL;DR: I have an arduino unoArduino Uno but very little experience with it or electronics.

Project: I want an object that locks, I want the duration of the time it stays locked for to increase by ~1-3% every time it locks. I want to put my nicotine products in there to gradually pull myself off nicotine. I have designed a rough 3D model of the box, which I can 3D print so now I'm looking at the electronics. TL;DR TL;DR: A box which stays locked for longer, every time it locks.

Electronics: A microcontroller/arduinoArduino/piPi to increase the locking duration; a locking circuit and some form of power supply.  

My 2 questions are (1) would the arduino uno be suited to this type of project? (2) what sort of components should I be looking for wrt the locking circuit and power supply (I'm thinking some sort of solenoid actuator and a battery pack)?
