I don't think so. I thought that maybe one of the hard disks may have one
without my knowledge. Event though I don't think that Qt could detect this.
I am running Linux and checked with sensor-detect, lspci, lsusb, checked the 
loaded modules what drivers are installed, and searched /sys. Nothing. 
Furthermore I have my desktop on a table with  wheels, so I actually could 
move it. The values didn't change at all. Most unlikely that there is an 
accelerometer somewhere.
