Thus, although Evers' controller may capable of being modified to perform the functions of the "controller," as required in independent claims l, 12, 17, and 18, such a disclosure fails to satisfy the "capable of" test which requires that the prior art structure be capable of performing the function without further programming. Typhoon Touch Techs., Inc. v. Dell, Inc., 659 F.3d 1376, 1380 (Fed. Cir. 2011) (discussing Microprocessor Enhancement Corp. v. Texas Instruments, Inc., 520 F.3d 1367 (Fed. Cir. 2008)).
