I have been porting Maemo robotfindskitten to Qt.  It's been quite impressively easy.  You can find the repo here and the annotated docs here.

In Maemo robotfindskitten, you can control robot either by using the hardware keys, or by tapping on the screen.  However, there are three things you can do with the hardware keys you can't do with the screen:
  • move in a random direction (R)
  • move towards something interesting (demo mode, D)
  • run (Shift)
In addition, there are three elements of the user interface other than hardware keys that are currently unused:
  • the centre of the screen
  • the two positions of the rocker switch
I think the centre of the screen should continue to do nothing, but I am considering pressing the rocker switch one way to mean "move towards something interesting", and tapping the screen while the rocker switch is pressed the other way to mean "run".  What do you think?

Also, in demo mode, dialogue boxes currently self-cancel after a few seconds.  Maybe this should be the rule in ordinary mode as well.  What do you think?
