I agree with JMartel. A proximity sensor seems to be more practible than a flesh sensing blade brake. Say if flesh gets to within a inch or two from the blade some built-in mechanism could do one of several things.

Sound a warning or flashing light and/or brake the blade. Of course the warning would have to not startle the
user of the saw.
