AUTOMATIC FLUID DISPENSER

Toaster Labs, Inc., Seat...

1. A dispenser comprising:
a reservoir having a fluid reservoir body, a valve, and a fluid delivery opening;
a housing defining a longitudinal direction, a horizontal direction perpendicular to the longitudinal, and a vertical direction
perpendicular to the longitudinal direction and the horizontal directions, the housing includinga base configured to provide
stability for the dispenser relative to a support surface that is parallel to the longitudinal direction and the horizontal
direction; and

a top portion positioned above the base, the top portion and the base defining a gap, the top portion defining a cavity having
a stop face, a lower wall for supporting the reservoir, an opening extending through the lower wall directly above the gap,
and an upper wall opposite the lower wall, the upper wall defining an insertion aperture sized to receive the reservoir;

a pressing member located within the cavity, the pressing member having a surface for engaging a first side of the reservoir
positioned within the cavity and slidable between a start position and an end position along an actuator direction that is
within 20 degrees from parallel to the longitudinal direction, the end position being closer to the stop face than the start
position, the stop face being positioned to engage a second side of the reservoir opposite the first side, the stop face being
between 2 degrees and 10 degrees from perpendicular to the actuation direction, the opening being positioned between the stop
face and the pressing member along the actuator direction and being closer to the stop face than the pressing member along
the actuator direction when the pressing member is in the start position; and

an actuator coupled to the pressing member, the actuator selectively moving the pressing member between discrete positions
between the start and end positions.

PORTABLE FLUID WARMING DEVICE

Toaster Labs, Inc., Seat...

1. A device to heat a fluid contained within a separate fluid reservoir, the device comprising:a housing that includes a first longitudinal end, a second longitudinal end, and one or more outer lateral surfaces extending from a laterally outer portion of the first longitudinal end to a laterally outer portion of the second longitudinal end;
a cavity within the housing that extends from a cavity port that is positioned on a laterally inner portion of the first longitudinal end to a cavity terminal that is positioned intermediate the first and the second longitudinal ends, wherein one or more inner lateral surfaces of the device are positioned adjacent the cavity and extend from the laterally inner portion of the first longitudinal end to a laterally outer portion of the cavity terminal;
a fluid reservoir received in the cavity, the fluid reservoir having one or more walls with interior surfaces and exterior surfaces, the fluid reservoir having a heating structure that is spaced apart from an entirety of the one or more walls, wherein the one or more inner lateral surfaces are positioned adjacent one or more portions of the exterior surfaces of the fluid reservoir; and
an energizing element that surrounds the cavity and that is disposed external to exterior surfaces of the fluid reservoir received in the cavity such that a portion of the cavity is positioned laterally intermediate a first energizing element portion and a second energizing element portion, wherein the energizing element is operative to provide energy to at least the intermediate portion of the cavity to transfer thermal energy to the fluid reservoir to control a temperature of a fluid in the fluid reservoir.

INDUCTIVELY HEATABLE FLUID RESERVOIR FOR VARIOUS FLUID TYPES

Toaster Labs, Inc., Seat...

1. A fluid delivery pod comprising:a first surface;
a second surface that opposes the first surface;
a reservoir body intermediate the first and the second surfaces, wherein the reservoir body is configured to house a fluid;
an outlet port in fluid communication with the reservoir;
a heating structure within the reservoir body and being electrically conductive to wirelessly receive inductive energy from an energy source that is external to the fluid reservoir to heat at least a portion of the fluid within the reservoir body; and
a valve assembly that is operative to, in response to an application of compression forces on the opposing first and the second surfaces, dispense at least a portion of the heated fluid through the outlet port;
wherein the first surface further comprises a piston that translates along at least a portion of the reservoir body.

AUTOMATIC HEATED FLUID DISPENSER

Toaster Labs, INc., Seat...

1. A dispenser comprising:a housing;
an aperture within the housing;
a reservoir body defining a translation axis and a reservoir volume for storing fluid;
an outlet port coupled to the reservoir body;
a chamber positioned within the reservoir body and protruding into the reservoir volume, the chamber defining a first opening and a second opening, the second opening positioned in the reservoir volume and the second opening being coupled to the outlet port;
a conductive cylinder fastened to an outer surface of the chamber between the first and second openings, the conductive cylinder protruding into the reservoir volume;
a receptacle within the housing that is configured to removably receive the reservoir body such that the outlet port is exposed through the aperture;
a heating element that is configured to energize at least a portion of fluid housed within the reservoir;
a piston disposed within the reservoir body; and
an actuator configured to urge the piston along the translation axis of the reservoir body to provide a dispensing force that induces a flow of a predetermined volume of energized fluid within the reservoir through the exposed outlet port of the reservoir and dispenses the energized predetermined volume through the aperture;
wherein the heating element is an inductive coil positioned outside of the reservoir body and configured to induce current in the conductive cylinder, such that the induced current in the conductive cylinder energizes the fluid housed in the reservoir.

INDUCTIVELY HEATABLE FLUID RESERVOIR

Toaster Labs, Inc., Seat...

1. A fluid reservoir comprising:a reservoir body includes a piston-engagement end and a dispensing end, the piston-engagement end and the dispensing end defining opposite ends of the reservoir body, wherein fluid is housed in the reservoir body;
a valve assembly that has a chamber at least partially disposed within the reservoir body;
a heating structure thermally coupled to the fluid and configured to energize at least a portion of the fluid housed in the reservoir body, wherein the heating structure is disposed within the reservoir body, wherein the heating structure is external to the chamber of the valve assembly and at least partially surrounds the chamber of the valve assembly;
a piston configured to engage the piston-engagement end of the reservoir body, wherein a volume of the reservoir body available to house the fluid is defined by a distance between the piston and the dispensing end of the reservoir body; and
an outlet port in fluid communication with the reservoir body, such that when the piston is linearly translated toward the dispensing end of the reservoir body a volume of the fluid that has been energized by the heating structure flows from the reservoir body and through the outlet port.
