If a proposed modification would render the prior art invention being modified unsatisfactory for its intended purpose, then there is no suggestion or motivation to make the proposed modification. In re Gordon, 733 F.2d 900,  902 (Fed. Cir. 1984). For example, our reviewing Court held that an invention was not obvious where the prior [art] taught the device required rigidity for operation whereas the claimed invention required resiliency. In re Ratti, 270 F.2d 810, 813 (CCPA 1959).
