Picture the scene: you sit down after a long day at work, pick up your phone and then decide that even scrolling is too much effort. We've all been there, right? Well, Xiaomi might have a cure for that scroll fatigue with this futuristic new smart device. 

Xiaomi has created the MiGu Headband, which allegedly reads your brain waves and transforms them into interactions with your smart devices. Yep, you could simply think about turning on your TV and it would switch on – how dystopian is that? But don't get your hopes up for brain-powered living too soon, because right now it's just a prototype and Xiaomi is yet to confirm whether it will pursue the device. However, if you would like to have a go at creating your own, you might want to brush up on your coding with one of the best coding courses.
