A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11951706B2) describes a device designed for dispensing cushioning material for packaging purposes. The device includes dispensing means, a withdrawal region for the user to access the dispensed cushioning material, and sensor means to detect user interaction with the dispensed material or the user's hand in the withdrawal region. The dispensing mechanism is activated when the sensor detects user engagement or the presence of the user's hand, conveying the cushioning material towards the withdrawal region.

Furthermore, the device features a detachable connection between different regions of the cushioning material, allowing the sensor to detect user actions on specific regions. The sensor technology includes various options such as light barriers, image recognition, infrared, and ultrasound detectors. Additionally, the device may include a transport mechanism to move the dispensed material to the withdrawal region based on user interaction or the presence of the user's hand. The sensor system is designed to act over the length of the withdrawal region, ensuring efficient and user-friendly dispensing of the cushioning material for packaging purposes.
