We are also not persuaded by the Examienr's design choice argument relying on In re Rose.  In Rose, the invention was drawn to lumber packages formed into bundles with encircling bands, which could be lifted by hand in the prior art, but where the claimed packages required a lift truck.  In re Rose, 220 F.2d 459, 463 (CCPA 1955) ("the size of the article under consideration ... is not ordinarily a matter of invention.")...

We therefore agree with the Appellants that because "replacing the bendable tube of Nunley with the ball of the present invention changes how Nunley operates, the modification proposed by the Examiner cannot render claim 1 obvious" (App. Br. 6). See In re Chu, 66 F.3d 292, 299 (Fed. Cir. 1995) (finding of "obvious design choice" precluded where the claimed structure and the function it performs are different from the prior art).

Rose, In re, 220 F.2d 459, 105 USPQ 237 (CCPA 1955) 2144.04

Chu, In re, 66 F.3d 292, 36 USPQ2d 1089 (Fed. Cir. 1995) 211.05 716.02(f) 1504.20 2145 ,
