  • Patent number: 10949846
    Abstract: Techniques for conducting transaction(s) between a merchant and customer(s) via a. multi-device point-of-sale system are described. The multi-device POS system can include a merchant-facing device having a first processor for processing first instructions for presenting a merchant user interface (UI) on a display of the merchant-facing device. Further, the multi-device POS system can include a first customer-facing device having a second processor for processing second instructions for presenting a first customer UI. The first customer UI can enable a first customer to perform a first action associated with a first transaction. The first customer-facing device can have been coupled to the merchant-facing device at a first time. Further, the multi-device POS system can include an application, which can be stored on the merchant-facing device, a second customer-facing device, or a personal device, for presenting a second customer UI enabling performance of a second action.

  • Patent number: 10949189
    Abstract: Techniques for securely updating a point-of-sale (POS) system that includes a merchant-facing device and a buyer-facing device are described. For instance, the merchant-facing device may execute first software that provides first POS functionality and the buyer-facing device may execute second software that provides second POS functionality. To update both devices, the merchant-facing device may receive a software update from a payment service via a network connection, and update the first software using the software update. The merchant-facing device can then cause, via a physical connection, the buyer-facing device to reboot in an update mode and send the software update to the buyer-facing device. In response, the buyer-facing device can update the second software using the software update and then reboot in a payments mode. In some instances, the buyer-facing device can then update a secure enclave on the buyer-facing device using the software update.

  • Patent number: 10943311
    Abstract: Techniques and arrangements for facilitating synchronization of order ticket functionality utilized by point-of-sale (POS) devices with kitchen display systems. In some example, a POS device and a line buster device collectively receive a plurality of customer orders associated with a transaction between a merchant and plurality of customers. Based on individual customer orders, the POS device determines when to fire off the orders to the kitchen display system irrespective of the sequence in which they are received. In some examples, the kitchen display system then synchronizes with a customer device to provide real-time or near-real time updates on the status of the order.

  • Patent number: 10898106
    Abstract: An implantable sensor configured to be inserted in an intramedullary canal can include a primary insert, a secondary insert, and an antenna. The primary insert can include a distal end, a proximal end opposite the distal end, and a central bore that can extend from an opening in the distal end towards the proximal end. A secondary insert can be receivable within the central bore through the opening. The secondary insert can include a body and a sensor module. The body can be removably engageable with an inside surface of the central bore. The sensor module can be disposable within the body and can be configured to produce a sensor signal as a function of a first sensed parameter indicative of infection. The antenna can be disposed in the central bore. The antenna can be configured to transmit a wireless signal as a function of the sensor signal.

  • Patent number: 10893943
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for applying a bone attachment coating to a prosthetic component, the bone attachment coating being formed from a plurality of particles applied to a surface of the prosthetic component. The method comprising: locally exciting the particles so as to increase the kinetic and/or thermal energy of the particles; and applying pressure to the particles by virtue of a press arranged so as to press the particles against the surface of the prosthetic component at an interface between the press and the prosthetic component. The kinetic and/or thermal energy of the particles causes localised heating of the component such that the particles may be embedded into the surface of the prosthetic component.

  • Patent number: 10592886
    Abstract: Techniques associated with a multi-functionality customer-facing device are described herein. A point-of-sale system can comprise multiple devices, such as a customer-facing device and a merchant-facing device that is coupled to the customer-facing device. The customer-facing device is capable of operating in a first state or a second state. In at least one example, the customer-facing device can present a graphical user interface (GUI) on a display. The customer-facing device can transition from the first state to the second state. The second state can enable the customer-facing device to perform at least one additional functionality that is not available to the customer-facing device in the first state. The customer-facing device can receive, while in the second state, an input via the GUI and can send to the merchant-facing device, an indication of the input.
