Sinewave Cycles has developed a product that lets you charge your phone using power generated while pedaling your bicycle. Several companies already offer gadgets that let you charge your phone using pedal power, but Sinewave Cycles' offering -- named 'Reactor' -- stands out in that it doesn't clutter up the handlebar. The device is largely integrated into the bike's steering tube, minimizing the amount of exposed external hardware.

The Sinewave Cycles Reactor's electronic components are situated in its cylindrical body, which sits inside the tube. Its power cable runs from the bottom of the unit and out through the bottom. A metal USB port sticks out the top of the device's body. A short USB cable can easily be run from it to the smartphone, which can be affixed to the bars using any bicycle smartphone mount.

The Reactor is expected to be priced at between $150-$180.
