Putting aside the two movie names present in the title of this article, which by the way are both closely tied to robotics, the HAL suit is real and is apparently entering into mass production according to its CEO.  The HAL suits operates by detecting slight electric muscle impulses and enhances the wearers strength, making it ideal for the elderly, those without full control of their limbs, or jobs that require mobility and strength.  Cyberdyne expects to begin production sometime this month, with a maximum output of 500 suits a year.

Cost to rent the suit will be about $1,000 month.
