Safety mechanism for power tools

How many products liability cases have you read claiming damages because of an alleged lack of safety mechanism in power tools? Here is a comment about a $1.5 million jury verdict against saw manufacturer Ryobi for failing to equip its table saws with some form of flesh detection technology, such as that offered in SawStop-brand saws. Here is a video demonstrating that technology.

Thanks to the Boston Personal Injury Blog for the information and video.
