Wireless battery recharging

Is there any technology out there we can use for ebikes to provide battery recharging without having to make a plug-in connection , like the induction pad that can recharge a smartphone? It would be convenient to leave the bike at a charging area without fidding with the plug and connector. it would need to provide the same bike input voltage as you get from its AC adapter. It wouldn't matter if it took somewhat longer to charge (i.e. overnight) just so as long as its ready the next day.

It’ll take significantly longer, but more importantly, it will actually use much more energy compared to plugging in via cable. I’d rather opt for something like a dock similar to what power tool manufacturers use but that won’t work for every bike as a lot of manufacturers are opting for the cleaner design of internal batteries.
