In this high-tech era, staying connected with your smart phone while cycling is a problem. The battery life is a limitation. The goal of this project is to encourage physical fitness while utilizing green energy. The Bike-lectric system is designed to help the urban bike commuter charge their smart phone while cycling. The system utilizes dynamo technology to generate electricity while the front wheel is spinning. Then, it applies wireless charging technology to transmit power to your smart phone. It will turn your smart phone not only into a GPS locator but also a bike light and a dash cam. It is also compatible with different brands of dynamo.
