Potential uses for the device include controlling Xiaomi smart home products with your thoughts, as opposed to using voice commands or a smartphone app. The team also suggested that you could use the gadget to detect fatigue, which may be helpful in medical settings. The headband works by taking an electroencephalogram (EEG), a test to measure the electrical activity of your brain; typically, an EEG is used to diagnose and monitor conditions affecting the brain, such as epilepsy. The electrical brain signals are measured at three points, with the difference between them helping the software to determine your thoughts. In this project, the engineers have mapped the EEG waveforms via artificially labelled machine learning.
A prototype for a device that lets you operate smart home appliances with your mind has been unveiled by Xiaomi as the MiGu Headband. The device was created by engineers from the Xiaomi Group during its third online hackathon. Your thoughts are determined by the wearable, which also utilises an electroencephalogram to identify weariness. In the third online hackathon hosted by the Xiaomi Group, the MiGu Xiaomi Headband took first place. The tournament had a number of Xiaomi engineering teams competing on various projects. The award-winning wearable can analyse your thoughts.

It is unclear whether Xiaomi plans to develop and sell the MiGu Headband in the future. The headband was revealed shortly after the company announced another smart wearable, the Xiaomi Mijia Smart Glasses. The AR gadget, currently crowdfunding in China, features two cameras and can be used to capture images and videos and provide real-time translation.
