The demo is a great example of how Qt Quick lets developers and designers think in reverse – eg thinking first about making the UI look right instead of thinking first about how to make the UI work.

But enough words, here is the video…
On a different topic, a super cool piece of proof that Qt really is everywhere came to us via our community recently.
Proving that Qt really is everywhere, developer Darron Black independently created a port that enables Qt to run on a Palm Pre handset (the Pre runs on the Linux-based WebOS platform).
