The mere fact that elements can be combined is not, in itself, a reason to combine them. Rather, an obviousness rejection further must explain the reasoning by which those findings support the Examiner's conclusion of obviousness. Perfect Web Techs., Inc. v. Info USA, Inc., 587 F.3d 1324, 1328-30 (Fed. Cir. 2009). Hence, in this case, we agree with Appellants that "there is no [reasonable] reason to conclude that a random one of Blow's [sensing] vectors would be better than the specific [sensing] vector disclosed by Kim." Reply Brief (dated Mar. 26, 2018) at 3. 

In conclusion, absent hindsight, we fail to see why a person of ordinary skill in the art would have provided Blow's second unipolar sensing vector between Kim's proximal coil electrode 116 and can electrode 209 in the manner claimed.

An examiner’s reasoning “may include recourse to logic, judgment, and common sense available to the person of ordinary skill,” which does “not necessarily require explication in any reference or expert opinion.” See Perfect Web Techs., Inc. v. InfoUSA, Inc., 587 F.3d 1324, 1328-29 (Fed. Cir. 2009); In re Bozek, 416 F.2d 1385, 1390 (CCPA 1969) (examiner may rely on “common knowledge and common sense of the person of ordinary skill in the art without any specific hint or suggestion in a particular reference”). However, “the mere recitation of the words ‘common sense’ without any support adds nothing to the obviousness equation.” Mintz v. Dietz & Watson, Inc., 679 F.3d 1372, 1377 (Fed. Cir. 2012).

Evidence of obviousness must come from the prior art, not the applicant’s own disclosure. In re Dance, 160 F.3d 1339, 1343 (Fed. Cir. 1998). “[T]o invoke ‘common sense’ or any other basis for extrapolating from prior art to a conclusion of obviousness,” the fact finder “must articulate [his or her] reasoning with sufficient clarity for review.” Perfect Web Technologies, Inc. v. InfoUSA, Inc., 587 F.3d 1324, 1330 (Fed. Cir. 2009)); see also, In re Vaidyanathan, 381 Fed.Appx. 985, 994 (Fed. Cir. 2010) (non-precedential) (“KSR did not free the PTO’s examination process from explaining its reasoning. In making an obviousness rejection, the examiner should not rely on conclusory statements that a particular feature of the invention would have been obvious or was well known. Instead, the examiner should elaborate, discussing the evidence or reasoning that leads the examiner to such a conclusion.”).
