Designers at IDEA LAB have found a way to utilize the kinetic energy produced from biking and convert it into a phone charging device with the Ino Bike.

The Ino Bike is able to transform from an outdoor transportation bicycle into a stationary exercise bike in three simple folds. Compatible with Apple and Android products, the charging dock on the bike is able to replenish the drained battery of both smartphones and tablets. The dock is conveniently placed at the the front, providing the cyclist a bit of entertainment during their regular workout routine. When the device is docked, users can also track their exercise routines in regards to how hard they are peddling, momentum and speed.

Unfortunately, this is still a concept item but the designers at IDEA LAB hope to roll out this item in 2014. Stats for Kinetic Phone Chargers Trending: Older & Average
