I want to sell a kit that contains multiple products within a plastic carrying case. Each product is produced in China and the same design of the product is sold by multiple factories in China. I guess each item can be considered something that is very common like a mug or a dinner plate. I am guessing that these items cannot be patented.
The one thing that I may be able to patent is the case. One item is a high powered magnet and the case needs to contain a certain amount of material so that the magnetic force is contained in the case and does not interfere with electronics or pacemakers. I believe this will require some not so obvious knowledge regarding the direction of the magnetic force and the type of material and dimension of the material in order to create a well functioning case.
Could this case be patented or could the simple fact of combining all these common items together be a patentable product to sell?
