What if you would wear special gloves that could easily be detected for proximity to the blade? Make them grippy on the outside to help when handling wood and help save us from those darn splinters too.

As for dropping the blade / stopping it. What if you found a way to make the blade rise as it spins? If you make it stop spinning, it would fall, add on top of that a braking mecanism (disc brakes?) of some sort.

Truth be told, I don’t own a TS yet. But is there a lot of heat generated right before a kickback as the wood is applying lateral force on the blade? Could perhaps devise something to prevent kickbacks by detecting differences in temperatures?

Just thinking out loud…probably all garbage. Maybe someone smarter can fix what I just said ;-)
