Video demonstrates experimental remote text input using the network transparency support recently added to Maliit. The illustrated use-case is to use your mobile device (tablet/smartphone) to act as an input device for your TV, replacing a traditional remote control.

The architecture of Maliit allowed this to work without needing changes in application toolkit or input method plugin: one can use the same virtual keyboard as normally used on the mobile device, and the same application support that would be used for non-remote input.

Some of the future work needed to make this truely useful is discussed.
