New gadget lets you charge your iPhone while you bike to work

This 300 gram gadget mounts onto your bicycle so that you can charge your phone while you cruise around the city.

Siva Cycle has launched a Kickstarter program to raise funds for their product The Atom.

The Atom transfers kinetic energy of your pedal-power to energy that can charge any USB device. Traveling at 10 mph the Atom outputs 3 watts of energy. It will cost $105 once the product goes to market.
