Seriously neat safety tech

I got pointed to a really neat bit of safety technology today. SawStop is a table saw with the ability to detect that it's cutting thumb instead of wood and stop the saw blade, and drop it out of the way, within two teeth of making contact with the skin. The video demonstration is especially impressive.

I dunno how $2500 compares for a 10-inch, 3 HP table saw, but even if it's a lot higher than comparable saws, it's still a hell of a lot cheaper than reattachment surgery. If I were in the market, I'd get one.
