Sweat to Electricity

Gadgets or contraptions that charge up while you use them are fairly uncommon. For example, some treadmills have been hooked up so that they power a small television or radio while a person’s running on it. Another example is Siva Cycle’s Atom generator, which can charge your connected device while you’re pedaling around town.

What sets it apart, though, is that it also charges up an on-board battery which you can detach and then use to charge compatible devices while you’re on the go.

Siva Cycle’s Atom generator is usable right from the box, which contains the generator, the┬ádetachable battery pack, a USB port that you’re supposed to install under your seat, and a ribbon cable to connect the two.

The Atom is currently up for funding on Kickstarter, where a pledge of $95 will get you one of your very own.
