Converting the power that you create from pedalling, Lithuanian sustainable energy start-up company Tukas EV has unveiled its battery 'power station' bike. 

The HR Bank bike is capable of generating between 50 to 300W/h of electricity as you pedal - as well as the capacity to store up to 2kW. You can then connect up the exercise bike to any output device, from powering a smart phone to a washing machine.
