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.

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
