I am thinking of making a certain consumer product. There is a similar product on the market that is designed to be used on a desktop and is quite large. (To the best of my knowledge it is not patented today, if that has any bearing on the answer).
The product I am thinking of is designed to be mobile (can be used in any position, not necessarily standing on a desktop) and significantly smaller.
What are your thoughts on this – is making a product mobile and smaller enough to fulfill the requirements of novelty?
