First, we are not persuaded that Appellants identify a nonobvious distinction. We note “it is well settled that it is not ‘invention’ to broadly provide a mechanical or automatic means to replace manual activity which has accomplished the same result.” In re Venner, 262 F.2d 91, 95 (CCPA 1958) (citation omitted); see also Leapfrog Enterprises, Inc. v. Fisher Price, Inc., 485 F.3d 1157, 1162 (Fed. Cir. 2007).
