The ups and downs of student life can make for an anything-but-consistent lifestyle, but in spite of this tumultuousness, there’s an upside: tons of crazy new gadgets that are surfacing daily, many of them geared towards students. Here are a few of the coolest gadgets we’ve come across that might just help you manage your sleeping, studying, socialising and other habits.

If you’re a frequent tablet user or you wish you could get some work done using just your smartphone, you might want to consider picking up a Bluetooth keyboard. And, the best Bluetooth keyboard on the market is the iClever Portable Foldable Bluetooth Keyboard because it is uniquely broken up into three sections, allowing it to be folded up and stored away into one smaller section.

Shun the shrill of an alarm clock for a more relaxed way of waking up – the Lumie Bodyclock Starter 30 that simulates the increasing light of dawn over 30 minutes, and helps you wake up feeling more refreshed and ready to face a day of uni work. It can be used in reverse too – with the light fading over half an hour if you have trouble falling asleep at night. R2192 from www.bidorbuy.co.za
