Flux bicycle kit by Offer Canfi charges phones while cycling, from Dezeen:

Offer Canfi‘s Flux project imagines a near-future scenario where bicycles are powered using resonant inductive coupling – a method of transmitting electrical energy without man-made conductors.

“This project is focused on resonant inductive bicycle lanes as a first step towards wireless power grids,” said Canfi. “The road becoming an emitter that can power up electric bicycles, laptops and phones, making batteries redundant.”

The designer proposes creating inductive bicycle lanes by laying a high-friction screed surface embedded with emitter coils along sections of road.

The current passing through these coils would transfer electricity wirelessly to similar copper elements on the bicycle mechanism via an oscillating magnetic field.

“The coils that are embedded into the screed turn on when the bicycle comes within range, using a radio-frequency identification (RFID) badge that recognises when the bike is near”….
