“Establishing long-felt need requires objective evidence that an art-recognized problem existed in the art for a long period of time without solution.” Ex Parte Jellá, 90 USPQ2d 1009, 1019 (BPAI 2008) (precedential). The Examiner does not indicate that Appellant has failed to present such evidence. Instead, the Examiner appears to require proof of failure of others to establish long-felt need. While long-felt need and failure of others are closely related, we are unaware of any authority for the Examiner’s proposition that failure of others is required to establish longfelt need. Therefore, we agree with Appellant that the Examiner has improperly required proof of failure of others to establish long-felt need.

“[P]roof of actual reduction to practice requires a showing that ‘the embodiment relied upon as evidence of priority actually worked for its intended purpose.’” DSL Dynamic Sciences Ltd. v. Union Switch & Signal, Inc., 928 F.2d 1122, 1125 (Fed. Cir. 1991), quoting Newkirk v. Lulejian, 825 F.2d 1581, 1582 (Fed.
